V^/ HE seafighters of the puny revolutionary frigates, of Mobile 

Bay, of Santiago, the Atlantic patrol, Midway, of Leyte Gulf were not always 

successful, nor always brilliant, nor always heroes. Some were, of 

course, and some were unsuccessful, and some were dull and undistinguished. 

But they all had one thing in common — a job to do. 

Doing their job, whether successful or not, was their tradition. 

It is the tradition of the Navy and the men of the Navy. It has become a mystic, 

fraternal mantle cast over all — that unites the brilliant with the plain. 

It is claimed by the rusty, unsung yard tugs along with 

the queenly battlewagons. It unites the admiral and the lowest seaman 

in the spirit of their task. 

We claim not only the heroes of the past, the brilliant or the wise — we claim 

all, the grimy snipe and the all-conquering idol, the yeoman in 

Washington and the dying gunners mate. When the victory flags were 

flown and trumpets joined the chorus of thankful hearts that 

heralded the war's end — the job had been done. It matters little what the 

war or in what age — the job was always done. It was done by 

not a few, nor by many, but by all working in concert. To the spirit that has 

inspired its accomplishment we humbly dedicate this book.

On the banks of the Severn stands a monument to a nation's faith in God, and a reminder 
to the Brigade of Midshipmen that when they "take the wings of the morning and dwell in 
the uttermost part of the sea even there shall God's hand lead them and His right hand 
uphold them." 

The Naval Academy Chapel, with its great dome crowned by a golden spire, calls the 
future Naval Officer to faith and worship. Within its sanctuary his voice is lifted with others 
in praise and prayer. Here he finds that quiet confidence born of trust in a Power not his own, 
comes to believe that "right makes might," and knows that he stands not alone in daily 
round of studies, or the larger struggle for a just and peaceful world to which he has com- 
mitted himself. So the Chapel stands, high over all, a sanctuary where men are armed in 
spirit and assured of an "Eternal Father, strong to save."

During your four years at the Naval Academy, we have constantly worked 
at the task of moulding the raw material received during your plebe summer 
into the junior officers that you are about to become. For you the process 
has probably been long, hard, and at times painful. The transition that has 
taken place in your class through these years was bound to be accompanied 
by acute growing pains. You have been put to a rigorous test, and those 
that have been found wanting have fallen by the wayside. 

We are living in trying and critical times, and the preparation for this must, 
of necessity, be highly demanding and exacting if we are to survive. The 
Class of 1952 has lived up to the trials and tribulations of the Naval Academy 
admirably. You have grown in stature, absorbed the knowledge and in- 
struction offered here, and responded to responsibility. You are enthusiastic 
and reliable. You have potentially great military leaders in your ranks. 
You are getting off to an excellent start in your careers. You have the ca- 
pacity and the flexibility of spirit to grow and expand mentally and pro- 
fessionally with the experience of the years to come and not to sit still and 
rest in this age of change and development. Good Luck !

During the Battle of Manila Bay, Admiral Dewey gave his famous 
command, "You May Fire When You are Ready, Qridleyl" 

Since completing your course of instruction in Ordnance and Gunnery you 
are probably convinced that Dewey's command was a gross understatement. 
By today's standards, what he could have said was, "Gridley, compute 
Sight Angle and Sight Deflection; allow for Dt, Df, Dj, Dw, Rjtwmx, 
correcting for trunnion tilt and parallax — and fire when on the target!" 

Because of the wide scope and complexity of modern weapons, it has been 
impossible to make your Ordnance and Gunnery curriculum all inclusive. 
Our teaching has, therefore, been limited to the fundamental concepts and 
basic principles which are so essential to aid you in attaining your immediate 
objective as a capable junior officer of the Armed Forces. 

Many of you will soon find yourselves occupying positions of direct re- 
sponsibility in connection with the use and control of the weapons which 
you have been studying. It is our most sincere hope that the professional 
foundation you have acquired in Dahlgren and Ward Halls will assist you 
in discharging those duties effectively. 

The Ordnance and Gunnery Department has appreciated your cooperation 
as students and wishes you the utmost success in your chosen careers.

In its dealings with the Class of 1952, the Department of English, History, 
and Government has been conscious of the fact that preparing a midshipman 
to be an efficient officer in the Fleet is a matter of adjusting him to a body 
of disciplines. In the Service, skills thus attained are operative from the day 
the young ensign reports on board his first day to the day upon which, for 
the last time, he hauls down his admiral's pennant. When the Class of 
1952 were plebes these disciplines took the form of writing clearly and tersely 
and reading good literature to develop skill in getting ideas from the written 
word. Youngster year was spent in the study of the history of modern 
Europe and American diplomacy. As the Second Class they learned the 
details of our national government and the principles of economics. In First 
Class year they have seen the influence of sea power on history and have read 
six great books about six different European nations, showing their culture 
and character. A term paper ended the four year course making use of all 
they had learned. 

The accumulated skills developed by these studies are at graduation ready 
for the synthesis that makes the midshipman an officer in the Fleet. It is also 
the sound basis for his future in dependent thinking in positions of the highest 
administrative importance.

As each of you leaves the Academy and enter into your life's work, you will 
encounter on every side the principles you have learned in the Department of 
Electrical Engineering. As junior officers you must instruct and train the 
men who operate and maintain intricate machinery which uses the scientific 
laws of chemistry, physics, electricity and electronics. These are the heart of 
modern science and mechanical improvements; these are the heart of what 
we have tried to teach you. 

There was not enough time, there is never enough time, for perfect grasp 
of these subjects or for examining every phase of science. Our mission was 
to give you a foundation in the fundamentals of science and the methods of 
scientific thought; with these you can advance confidently toward future 
specialized training; with these you can confidently cope with the marvels of 
modern life.

With the advent of aviation the whole course of modern warfare was 
revolutionized. So important has aviation become that no military man 
can afford to ignore the capabilities of the airplane as a major weapon. 

For this reason all Naval Academy midshipmen are given a course of 
instruction and indoctrination which should ensure a thorough understanding 
of aviation. At the Naval Air Facility, Annapolis, Maryland, they are given 
several opportunities actually to control aircraft in flight. At sea, they 
observe the intricate teamwork and complex operations aboard an air- 
craft carrier. In the classroom, academic instruction is given in meteorology, 
basic aerodynamics, and the air-surface procedures used in controlling air- 
craft on various missions. Interspersed with these are practical drills and 
lectures on such subjects as airborne electronics, air combat tactics, air 
intelligence, research and development, military air organization, and flight 
training. In addition, conducted tours of various military air installations, 
test centers, and aircraft manufacturing plants provide an opportunity for 
an insight into these vitally important facets. 

Many midshipmen go on to become qualified pilots in the Navy, Marine 
Corps, or Air Force, and profit directly from this training. Of greater 
importance, however, all graduates have acquired a better understanding of 
aviation, its value, its capabilities, and its potentialities.

Bulky drawing kits and perspiring hands — Irish mail — hoc-running slip- 
sticks — boilers — pumps — movies — the mysteries of fluids and heat balances 
— turbines — diesels — jets — damage control — it all added up to STEAM. 
For four years we submerged in hot oil and breathed hot vapors. But we 
learned much and the experiences of two cruises helped us visualize the 
practical Naval applications of the studies. Recollection of those sectionalized 
models — which let us see what happens inside all kinds of machinery — gave 
some meaning to the innumerable dials and gauges in the cramped ma- 
chinery spaces of the cruise ships. Visits to industrial plants in nearby 
cities and to the Engineering Experiment Station supplied welcome respites 
from printed words and let us see how others make specialized use of the 
same knowledge which is imparted to us. We are told we have much yet 
learn in the Fleet; we don't question that, but remembering what we 
slaved to absorb in four years of Marine Engineering, we can be pardoned for 
wondering "How much more?"

Physical Training has to envisage for graduates a future in the stratosphere, 
on storm-tossed oceans, under the sea, and on disputed beachheads. Even 
before the stencil ink was dry on your first whites, you found yourselves trying 
to negotiate a rugged obstacle course, swimming under water without bene- 
fit of air, and testing your muscles against standards seemingly only thinly 
disguised from those of the Olympic Games. Then came the survival 
subjects . . . swimming, boxing, wrestling, hand-to-hand, and safety training. 

Equally as rugged in its conception was the course in athletic competition 
for everyone — ranging in degree from top varsity to the last panting runner 
in an intramural mile run. This is where group loyalty, team spirit, fair 
play, and ability to think quickly under pressure found a chance to measure 
up to the high standards set by those who had gone before you. 

Now that you have reached the point of summing up everything that was 
yours from Physical Training, we trust you find your posture decidedly 
improved, your physical bodies in a two-fisted state of being . . . but far 
beyond that, endowed with the necessary stamina and fortitude to qualify 
in toughness for service in a Fleet that has never fallen short of the best in

The curriculum of the Department of Seamanship and Navigation is 
pointed to the development of Naval Seamen. In the formative months 
of plebe summer the midshipman is introduced to the basic elements of his 
new profession — the language of the sea, the rules of the nautical road, signal- 
ling, knot tying, and handling of boats under sail, oars, and power. His 
education in the fundamentals is amplified and expanded in the next two 
years by drills and practice cruise training. Fueling at sea, towing, anchoring, 
log writing, and lookout duties are taught. 

It is only in his last two years that formal classroom instruction is added 
to the drills and practice cruise training. Courses in celestial navigation, 
piloting, communications, seamanship, the naval aspects of international 
law, and the fundamentals of Naval operations and warfare are designed to 
enable the new Ensign to promptly qualify in the duties of a useful junior 
officer of the line.

Two and a half years of your time here was spent in close association with 
the Mathematics Department. In many cases, I am sure that this association 
was more pleasant for the Department then for the class. As time dulls 
the memory of the more unpleasant features of our encounters, we hope 
there will remain an understanding of our objective to provide a sound 
mathematical foundation to support the courses of other departments and 
for future studies. 

The Mathematics Department will certainly remember the Class of 1952 
as one of the finest and extends best wishes for a successful career to all 
members of the Class.

The general objective of the Department of Foreign Languages is, "To 
provide every midshipman with a working knowledge of one foreign lan- 
guage and a knowledge of the area, the civilization, the customs, and the 
history of the people whose language is being studied." 

Languages are the primary means of communication. The better we 
know the language and customs of our friends and adversaries, the better, 
we can understand them and the more efficiently we can deal with them. 

Naval officers are frequently in contact with foreigners and are often the 
only representatives of this country present. The advantages of being able 
to converse directly in their language are obvious. The ability to understand 
communications in a foreign tongue is invaluable. 

The time allotted to the study of languages at the Naval Academy is, of 
course, insufficient to produce accomplished linguists. This Department 
endeavors, however, to stimulate interest in languages and provide an in- 
centive for midshipmen to continue to build on the foundation they have 
acquired, in order that the Fleet may be provided with officers capable of 
dealing effectively with foreign nationals.

We, of the Department of Hygiene, are happy to have this opportunity to 
extend to the Class of 1952, our sincere congratulations and best wishes in 
your future undertakings. 

While our meetings with you have lacked the formality of the lecture 
hall, we know that in the few minutes allotted to you in the morning and 
evening sick calls, you have absorbed the material presented. It may even 
be that many of you have become specialists in such things as the common 
cold, athletes foot, or the skin and its contents ! We would also like to state, 
at this time, that contrary to the popular belief among Midshipmen, the 
APC tablet is still the treatment of choice for that peculiar illness known 
as Bancroftitis , a syndrome that is apparently endemic in this area between 
the months of September and June. Fortunately this malady runs a self- 
limited course and no cases have been reported in the outside world, except 
in a small, remote village in New York State, called West Point, where a 
malignant form of the disease has been reported. 

Now, on the eve of your departure, may we wish you Godspeed and may 
our future meetings all be social.

"It will be requisite that young 

Men serve a certain term in Quality 

of Midshipmen, or Masters Mate 

efore they are examined for promotion." 

ERECT, gilt lettering on a somber black cover. "Regu- 
lations of the U. S. Naval Academy" it read. It was an 
austere looking thing, uninviting, foreboding, perhaps. 
It rested there alone, accompanied only by a severe 
green blotter, rigidly squared with it on the desk top. It 
was too rigid perhaps, too pure, too intensely military. 
It betrayed no sensibilities, no emotion, no aesthetic 
consciousness. The geometry of its corner of our lives 
was too apparent, ascetic, and puritan resting there on 
the desk top. . . . But yet it was only right that the book 
should always lie there, square and severe. It was typi- 
cal of the book, of the way of life that the book guar- 
anteed. It was, after all, the supreme disciplinarian . . . 

Obedience is the essence of discipline. The essence of 
our obedience was in the Regulation Book. We would 
like to argue, to find fault, to criticize, yet there was no 
victory. There was satisfaction, perhaps, rationalization, 
too. Yet the terse phrases, the rigidity of the rules, were 
too obvious; they admitted no compromise. We knew 
that, perhaps. Perhaps we knew it but never admitted it. 
It was a hard process of learning, for four years often 
seemed a long time. Yet the book was always there — in 
our moments of bitterness mocking us; in moments of 
realization teaching us . . . 

It is admittedly hard to attribute to an inanimate object 
living qualities. The Regulation Book, with all its stern- 
ness and discipline, certainly .would seem ill fitted to 
qualify for them. But are not sternness and lack of humor 
human characteristics? Could not a book be cast in the 
role of supreme taskmaster? The book itself would not 
merit the role. There would need to be a thing besides. 
The thing was the military, the way of life that was neces- 
sary to produce in us the qualities of good officers. That 
way of life was the Regulation Book — and even if it made 
four years seem a long time, it gave a meaning to them.

A confused medley of marching feet, drumming, cadence, 
rhythmic movement. An onomatopoetic cacophony in free 
verse. Men on the move, books, slide rules, pencils, the raw 
materials of education carried to their rendezvous. The ge- 
ometry of military movement, the squared corners, the eternal 
beating of marching feet. . . . 

Sometimes the bodies of men in the formations were tired —

sometimes the minds. The books were carried loosely, the 
shoulders hunched forward. The marching was done me- 
chanically, one foot in front of the other, the eyes boring ahead, 
vacant. Silent contemplation of the ground around, the trees, 
budding and green, flaming, silent and barren, in the winter 
the dead grass, the dying land. Sometimes the rain beating 
down, the mind deadened, a thousand men gliding forward 
like so many spectres. 

The shining clangorous parades on Worden Field . . . the 
music, the loud and brassy trumpets. Navy blue and white on 
the greensward. Rigid files of uniforms fading in perspective 
through the distance, silent, more like China dolls than living 
men. . . . 

But the trumpets faded and the rains came and the winters 
crept about us and the years went on. Left over right, right 
forward again, then left. . . . Column right on Stribling Walk, 
half left on the terrace, sections dismissed. . . .

Like the hard, metallic clang of a sledge 
hammer our education was driven home to 
us. It seemed there was no relaxation in 
the pressure — a continual, week in, week 
out, hammering. Of course it probably 
was the daily quizzes that tormented us, 
that flogged us, and forced us to keep our 
noses buried in the books. It was un- 
doubtedly effective, for an education came 
to us. But for four years the doubts and 
cries of anguish rose. 

We covered a great deal in four years — 
travelling at breakneck speed through the 
wonders of calculus and mechanics, elec- 
tronics and physics, literature and Naval 
ordnance, navigation and modern eco- 
nomics. When we finished we wondered 
how much we would carry with us — but 
we would probably never find out. Our 
education was there — it remained to be

dread of the quiz — and the relief when the 
ordeal was over. The long sleepless exam 
weeks went by and in a few months reap- 
peared again. It became a pantomime of 
symbol and text and slide rule, of blood- 
shot eyes and leaden feet. We wondered at 
the mechanical ritual we went through — 
thinking that perhaps all it was was a 
game of reading, reciting, and forgetting. 

But patches of learning remained, and 
only a little remaining means success. But 
all of our education was not from books — 
and as we terminated four years, reflecting 
back in free retrospect on the creatures we 
were when we entered, we thought per- 
haps most of our education came in other 
ways. We learned, it seems, a different 
way of life. We met people and learned to 
live with them. We became accustomed to 
strange things and strange places. We 
learned to live our lives more successfully. 
And, after all, what is education but the 
process of learning to live a successful life 7

The long climb to the fourth deck — the stairways stacked

and sweat suit. The arms dangle, flail over head, leaden feet 
dance a short jig. Hoarse shouts across the chalk stripes — the 
spinning, elusive, bounding ball — surging, pounding, gyrating 
— the heaving, laboring shoulders — the spinning blue sky 
overhead and wavering, warm earth beneath. Tangled arms 
and legs, jarring contact, the clean explosion of whirling horse- 
hide and new pine — the healthy, purged, acrid and laboring 
smell of sweat and mud. . . . 

The shoulders still heave with the hard breathing. A shot of 
water salves the dry throat. The mind is blank, eclipsed by 
exertion and nervous reaction — dry books and importunate 
grades are unknown. The time is momentary and the body is 
one with the whirling sky and the sharp evening air. . , .

The acutely brilliant lights of the great building boring out 
through the evening with checkerboard regularity, polishing 
the herringbone bricks with the rain. . . . How long has the 
rain come and gone? How many seasons have seen the 
yellow bricks wet with the rain and then dry again? How 
many seasons have seen the ivy-mottled sides of the gray, 
hulking hall bloom and flare and die and then bloom again? 
The nights ... a thousand searchlights in the darkness. The 
searchlights dying, one by one, winking and dying. And then 
silence, and sleep, and the great structure looming ghostly, 
silhouetted across the moon. . . . And within, the denizens of 
the hall, the lifeblood that courses through its corridors, that 
ebbs and floods, the thousands of strangely individualistic 
corpuscles, now throbbing, now still, wherefrom the inert 
gray walls draw their meaning, their animation . . . the men 
living there ... for four years. . . . The men, coming and 
going, year after year, living their lives to the ascetic music of 
regimentation, study, sleep, shining shoes, the rhythmic ac- 
companiment of marching feet. . . . The silent walls have 
looked on odd doings, on singing and laughing and proud 
young voices. But more often their reception has been of 
quieter things, the silent noises of enlightenment, the rippling 
of pages, a pencil scratching the solemn quiet of well-earned 
sleep . . . sometimes frustration, sometimes the silent elation 
of discovery of a new wisdom, a meaning of things. Four 
years in the life of a young man ... a long, long time, and the 
immovable walls shelter all . . . doubts, despair, search, 
pleasure, hope. . . . There is an affinity between man and his 
shelter, his walls. They become more than just remorseless 
stone — dumb, senseless constructions. They share the burden 
that man is wont to bear. Bancroft Hall became more than a 
mere dormitory ... at the very least a symbol, perhaps more, 
perhaps a comrade, perhaps teacher of itself, perhaps a 
home . . .

Somehow they always came to Annapolis. The great 
and the forgotten, the heroic and the prosaic, they always 
came down to watch. They watched the marching mid- 
shipmen, heard the blare of the trumpets, saw the acres 
of white caps and gold buttons. They were almost uni- 
versally impressed with the parades — with the silent, 
youthful ranks arrayed before them. They were honored 
and impressed — and always saw leave to tell us how the 
world was counting on us. 

$ 60 

And it may have been so. We were glad that they 
were impressed and honored — and we felt good when 
they told us how we were counted upon. But perhaps it 
all didn't matter. The one thing that did matter was that 
we were honored to be able to march for them. 

Some, like General de Tassigny, were famous as heroes. 
Others, like the Shah of Iran and the premier of Pakistan, 
made news in other ways. Some were decorated and 
honored in the review and stood stiffly receiving the salute 
they so well deserved. They were great men, and they 
were honored as great men. That was sufficient for us.

Three thousand pairs of heels crashed together and 
three thousand pairs of eyes strained in rigid sockets to 
glimpse the passing officers. A late spring sun sparkled 
in a cloudless sky and thrust up from the courtyard, a 
dazzling glare. The two squares of white topped mid- 
shipmen burned brightly. There was a touch of heaven 
and summer, both, in the air. 

The officers mounted the gray enshadowed steps and 
one of them began to read. All was silence and solemnity 
and bright spring. 

"... You are hereby detached from your present com- 
mand and directed ..." 

Formalized words. The flashbulbs popped as the 
Admirals shook hands. A few words were spoken and 

the Brigade had a new superintendent. 

It had happened before in much the same way. It 
would happen again . . . and again. The faces were dif- 
ferent, perhaps, but the scene the same. There would be 
the same yellow bricks and gray walls, perhaps the same 
spring sun. The Admirals come . . . stay a few years . . . 
and then move on. With all the officers it is the same — 
an eternal forced restlessness. Even the midshipmen 
move on . . . only the scene remains the same. The same 
ranks of blue with different faces, and they grow, and 
graduate, and serve, and retire. There is no moral here — 
no fable or parable, just a page from the changing scene. 
Only the old buildings, the sheltering trees, the silent 
monuments remain . . .

On a rock, nestled on the heights above the 
Hudson, on the fringe of the beautiful Catskills, is 
a school dedicated to the production of Army 
officers. We sang songs about this school since 
the day we became plebes, we paraded with them, 
and met them venomously on the field of sport. 
To the casual outside observer that was the extent 
of our association with the gentlemen from West 
Point. Yet it wasn't all, and to the gratification 
and enlightenment of all of us, it was a good thing 
that our association was not limited to cheering 
and jeering the greylegs. 

There has always been a great respect between 
West Point and the Naval Academy that is far 
removed from the football field. It is above that, 
although the rivalry is a healthy and natural de- 
velopment. It stems from the missions of the two 
schools, the mutual tasks, the mutual problems, the 
similar and dissimilar ways of solving these prob- 
lems. We found that the grey and the blue were 
merely facades, the men beneath were the same. 

£ 6^ 


The results were many friendships, and a mutual 
admiration and respect. 

During CAM ID we first met the Cadets and 
learned something of how they fought their part of 
the battle . Later on in second class year , we journeyed 
to the Point and the Cadets came to Crabtown. 
Most of us will never forget the three days we spent 
at the Point. It was more than the clear spring days 
in the mountains; it was more than our awe at 
seeing the impressive array of buildings and grounds 
displayed there; it was more than the battle flags 
and parades, that made us remember West Point. 
Perhaps it was the sincere way in which the cadet 
and midshipman shook hands, the genuine glance 
of respect that passed between them, the mutual 
interest to which their common profession made 
them heirs. Perhaps it was indefinable, a thing that 
was there and recognized, but couldn't be told. 
But it was there, and we knew that whenever we 
yelled "BEAT ARMY !" and we did beat them, our 
victory would be well-earned.

Have you noticed how the Chapel Dome 

reflects the light these days? 
The trees, though bare, are beautiful

the days go awful slow. 

There's a Christmas tree in Bancroft . . .

And the Spirit of the Yuletide

Some stockings hung above the doors . . .

I got four free rides today. 
I've got that Christmas feeling . . .

THE PICTURE — glass, gilded frame, and stiff board. The picture, nothing 
more than a pretty face. Why did he sit there and muse before it? Why the 
reverie, the pause with the pen poised over the naked paper? Thoughts. 
Thoughts before the girl, of the girl, of the unwritten letter. 

My Dearest Pat, 

Time seems to fly, and I'm at a loss to explain where it goes. / remember your 
last letter, and I remember how long it's been since it arrived. I've been busy, 
true, but I could have written sooner because I have thought of you a great 
deal . . . 

Busy? How busy must one be to forget to write? To think of her — yes, the 
thoughts come easily. When doesn't one think of her? Sometimes she comes 
to haunt you. Her face is so easily remembered. Sometimes out of the Ordnance 
book, when the world lies in a misty half light and there is no reality, only 
symbols and half remembered dreams, she swims before you. That pretty 
face . . . 

. . . Sometimes the routine gets to me. The aches of boredom creep up and 
strangle. Then your face, your wonderful, laughing face comes to haunt me and 
for a moment I forget where / am and where you are. The miles are nothing for 
a moment and then they are there again, and I realize how lonely I should be . . . 

Lonely? Perhaps one shouldn't be lonely. Miles are only distance and there 
is always a tomorrow. There is always a leave ahead, a brief respite. But is 
not life always thus? Couldn't she be just a memory — or an expectation? Why 
so much? A girl is only that, a girl. But the girl? . . . 

. . . / shouldn't be lonely, I know, but sometimes it can't be helped. I have my 
life here, studies, an education, a career. I have friends, many, perhaps. But still, 
in moments like these, when the world is a dark thing within and without, when 
the frigid claws of winter creep around me as well as the barren countryside, I 
need something more. Perhaps consolation, probably a comforting hand on my 
shoulder, undoubtedly escape. There is so pitifully little comfort in silent scratch- 
ings on a white page . . . 

More than that is needed, much more. One needs belief, belief in something 
real. The aimlessness of life grows too apparent, the fire dies. Spring is a long 
way off. She brings a way, a distant hope in this, the winter of our discontent. . . 

. . . / wouldn't lie if I said that life appears tedious. But I don't want sympathy or 
condolence. What I want can't be said in so many words. Relief, I suppose, per- 
haps that is it and nothing more. A good night's sleep and perhaps I'll be all 
right . . . 

But will one be all right in the morning? The hundreds of miles will still be 
there, and so will the memories, and so the hope . . . 

. . . Don't worry about me. I'm not bitter or discouraged. Perhaps just a little 
worn out. I still count the long days 'til June Week, and they're passing one by 
one. Take care of yourself and don't forget that sometimes I dream of you. 

Yours Always . . . 

The mute characters on the white rectangle, couriers of the age, the winged, 
red square in the corner. It was all that was needed. Tomorrow she'll be read- 
ing it. . . . The shuffling echoes down the darkened corridor and the barren 
rectangle falls down the realistic mail chute. More shuffling, a door closing, a 
muted sigh and then the air is heavy with the sounds of sleep. In the silence 
and the darkness the picture stands as before, glass, gilded frame, and pretty, 
smiling face.

Dawn comes stealthily over the quiet 
Maryland countryside. The town is sleepy 
in the gray twilight; the branches hang 
motionless on the fresh, green trees; the 
bay is placid. Only thirteen men of war 
lying quietly at anchor, far out on the bay, 
lend an ominous note to the peaceful June 

Beginning slowly, but rising rapidly 
in a crescendo of sound and movement, 
activity breaks out on shore. Hundreds of 
young men burdened by baggage swarm 
along the dockside. Boats putt to and fro; 
giant cranes, like monstrous gnats, crouch 
over the crowd on the pier. The din 
becomes a babble of voices and a kaleido- 
scope of motion and color. Girls in cotton 
dresses stand to the side, silent, tearful; 
their men tarry near them with folded 
arms, squinting through the gaze at the 
distant, indistinct ships. The motion 
becomes commotion and the commotion 
becomes confusion. But the confusion 
has an order to it and in its peculiar, chaotic 
way the cruise begins. . . . 

And then the babble and confusion fades 
and the boats depart and the pier is silent, 
littered by the refuse of the departure and 
flooded by the June sun. The branches 
hang motionless and the air is hot, for 
summer has come and the girls in the cot- 
ton dresses turn slowly and walk away.

Twenty-four hundred tons of steel lie silently in the 
harbor, immobile. They taper at one end and are 
squared off at the other in a slight curve forming a tank- 
like structure 360 feet long. One portion is flattened 
horizontally and runs entirely around the tank-like lower 
part — above this rises a jumbled pyramid of odd shapes 
and sizes of steel structure capped by a needle-like con- 
struction rising 90 feet above the surface. The steel forms 
a modern destroyer — a triumph of engineering, ordnance 
and electronics. It is an expensive and highly complicated 
weapon of war — probably two years in the building. It is 
one huge machine — man made and man operated. It is 
a page in the book of man's unique achievements in his 
war with nature. It is a monument to his ingenuity — 
and it is a formidable weapon of war. 

But as it lies there, it is nothing more than so many 
tons of steel, silent and inactive. Into its hull must be 
poured three hundred trained men to operate its com- 
plicated bulk, its machinery. Only then will it be a 
weapon of war. Until it gets men inside, above, and 

£ 76 


throughout itself, it will remain immobile and silent — 
only potential. 

That is what a ship is — a weapon — but no weapon 
without men. A destroyer, a battleship, when effective 
as a weapon is a marriage of men and machinery work- 
ing together. The millions of dollars worth of electron- 
ics, boilers, turbines, radio, guns, and steel hull is useless 
without the intelligent guiding hand. 

But the men who man the ship must be trained. The 
vessel is as useless as it was when empty if the men 
don't work together and with their equipment. There 
is an affinity there. A new crew comes aboard and the 
crew and the ship are strangers. The ship can do no more 
than the men will it to do. They can ignore their natural 
relationship and fight their equipment and hate the ship; 
or they can learn to live and work with it. When they 
recognize their affinity with the ship and do harmonize 
with those cold physical things they have achieved their 
goal and the ship is a useful weapon. What is more, the 
crew has made the vessel a happy ship.

Education is a strange and varied thing. It is a process of growing up, of assimilating knowl- 
edge, of meeting people and situations, of seeing the world in a truer perspective. 

Not the least of our education were our cruises — the sometimes strange and familiar places 
seen from the bridge of a battleship or over the nacelles of a large air transport. It would be 
better, perhaps, to float up Oslofjord on a beautiful summer day in a deck chair on a liner, but 
the deck of a warship is better than nothing at all. Who will forget the flanking fir forests and 
the sawtooth, snow-capped mountains of Norway — the neather-strewn Scottish highlands — the 
hedgerows and stone cottages of Normandy? Who cannot recall the hustling ardor of old London, 
the sleeping, semi-tropical beauty of Lisbon, the businesslike bustle of the Rotterdam waterfront, 
the mystic, hypnotic spell of Paris? 

The airborne symbols of the age of speed lifted some of us out of our sequestered existence and 
showed us our own country. From Atlantic to Pacific and back in two weeks — eight thousand 
miles by air ! We saw not-so-colonial Boston, the craggy skyline and bright lights of New York, 
the hog-butchering, freight- moving vanity of Chicago, the idyllic beachcombing Miami shoreline, 
the lazy native and foreign recipe known as New Orleans, the blistering, parched desert air bases, 
seemingly a thousand miles from humanity, the old world colony of Frisco and the bourgeois 
wonders of Los Angeles. These were not all, of course, for we traveled the length and breadth of 
the country. It was, in a sense, an education. . . . 

But sometimes an education comes unbeknown and is actually enjoyed. Bicycling across the 
Swedish countryside, strolling the Copenhagen waterfront, watching the gulls kick up in flutter- 
ing droves, wandering along the Seine in the early morning, walking the moors at sunset — how 
can these pursuits be evaluated or accredited? 

No, education is not derived entirely from books. . . .

Across the ocean — the continent. The great 
wide world beyond. When we were young, 
and even when we were older, we read 
stories of the lands across the sea. Since 
good, wholesome, red blood coursed through 
our veins, we were intrigued. We wanted to 
take up our burden, to go, to see the world. 
In 1949 most of us got our first chance. 

The Paris of Franklin, of Hemingway, of 
Paul, of all the host of expatriated Americans 
came alive to us before our eyes. It became a 
different thing to tread the old cobblestones, 
to look in awe at the variegated glass of the 
Notre Dame, to stand in silence before Na- 
poleon's tomb, than to read of those things in 
musty books. There was an education in being 
there, a broadening, a prestige to return home 
a traveler. But to most it was a treat — a party 
put on by the city with a soul — a charming 
little incident in life . . . 

The noble old town of London has a history 
more venerable than any town in the Western 
world. It has an ancient pride and aloof 
majesty that disguises its heart to the casual 
observer. We discovered the heart before its 
noble heraldry became apparent. It was a city 
of many millions, and those millions were the 
city — the history, the legend, the pompous 
masonry were only window dressing — yet 
they all were curiously stewed to make an 
oddly continental recipe for a delightful city.

CAFE became his little corner of the world. 
He slumped down behind a corner table 
Where he could see the street and waved 
to the waiter. The waiter came over and 
wiped off the table. He was a short, stout 
man with a wrinkled black suit and a 
mustache and a dirty white apron. 

"Deux bieres, garcon, s'il vous plait." .- 

"Deux, m'sieur?" the waiter asked quiz- 
zically, holding up two fingers. 

"Oui," he replied. "How do you say it? 
J'ai une ami? A friend's going to join me." 

He turned to look at the street as the 
waiter disappeared. He fumbled in his 
pocket for a cigarette and watched the 
crowds hurry by as he lighted it. It was 
high noon on the Rue de I'Opera. 

So this is Paris, he thought. This is the 
paragon of the world, the lovable, incom- 
parable, mysterious lady of the Seine. 
What was it they said? "If you sat here 
long enough, you would see everyone you 
ever knew pass by." This is the fantasy, the 
soul, the heart of France — and the Western 

He settled back contentedly and blew 
smoke rings at the awning overhead. He 
listened to the babble of voices, the blaring 
of horns, the gendarmes tooting their 
whistles. He watched the whirring little 
cars skitter like bugs around the square in 
a mad, rule-breaking, death-defying merry- 







go-round. He watched two demure Indian 
ladies waddle across the street swathed in 
their saris, a quartet of Highlanders from 
the Suez prance past in shorts and tarns, a 
swarthy Arabian in his coarse tent-like 
robes. He glanced at his neat blues and felt 
reassured — sure that one more uniform 
would go unnoticed in this city of bizarre 



He listened to a beefy red-faced fellow 
at the next table tell in a throaty Oxford 
accent of his trip to the Riviera. On the 
other side he heard a tall dark fellow 
speaking slowly in a gutteral German. He 
heard two Italian girls chatting rapidly 
with a fellow wearing a red cap with a 
black tassle whom he took for a Scandi- 
navian. Two American college girls were 
whispering in a Virginia drawl and looking 
askance in his direction. A bearded artist 
was sketching them and speaking rapidly 
in broken English. 

He didn't see her when she came up and 
didn't notice her until she had settled 
gracefully in the chair at his table and was 

taking off her gloves. 

"Bonjour, Shonnie," she said liquidly. 
"Pardonnez mo/. Je suis tard. I am late." 

He looked up, startled. "Gosh, Cecile. 
I'm sorry — I didn't see you. I was watch- 
ing all these foreigners. You know, it's 
good to meet someone who's French." 



he history of the undergraduate days of a 
Navy class is, by necessity, broken up into four 
parts for analysis, each part being a separate year. 
Actually, however, there are only three parts — 
Plebe year, which is so entirely different from any- 
thing else that it is held separate — those times in 
our upperclass years when we were at the Academy 
— and those times when we were not, such as 
cruise, leave, and CAMID. 

The similarities, on the surface, between the 
three upperclass years are more numerous and actu- 
ally more striking than the differences. However, 
the differences appeared in the stripes on our sleeves, 
in the gates we could walk through, in all the 
little rates we knew so well, so that they, the 
differences, became a state of mind — and youngster 
year was set off a little below second class year, 
and first class year cherished far above all. So it 
was the years, marching stately by in their seem- 
ingly endless procession, that became our mile- 

The summer of 1948 was hot and sultry in 
Annapolis as twelve hundred youths passed through 
the portals of Bancroft Hall to form the one hundred 
eighth class destined to graduate from the Naval 
Academy. We were an assorted lot; perhaps a 
third of us being ex-sailors, soldiers, and marines; 
another third from college; and another third fresh 
from prep and high school. Most of us were 
eager, brave, and hopeful as we entered our plebe 
year. But we were green, terribly green — and we 
found, upon plunging into the gruelling routine 
of plebe summer that the next four years would not 
all be peaches and cream. 

Plebe summer might have been called idyllic. It 
was certainly a lull before the storm of the Brigade 
returning, of the bracing, running, and servile atti- 
tude we would be forced to assume plebe year. We 
cleaned our rifles, marched and marched again, 
stroked the whaleboats and set sail on the summer 
Chesapeake. We spent long hours on the rifle range, 
longer hours shining shoes and cleaning our rooms. 
We were learning the ropes of the military life. 

But we were to 
learn more plebe 
year. With the 
coming of the Bri- 
gade we lost the 
class identity we had 
had plebe summer 
and became indi- 
viduals once more, 
fighting for survi- 
val. Gradually we developed friendships within 
our companies ; we were forced to out of the neces- 
sity of having a companion in peril. We went to 
football games and forgot our troubles and then 
came back again. We saw our team tie a mighty 
Army contingent in the first of a series of four fine 
Army-Navy games. We relaxed until Christmas 
and went home to show off our blues and recuper- 
ate. But when we came back we found the hard 
lot of the plebe still there waiting for us. 

And always there was the spectre of academics 
hanging over our heads — and in the early part of 
1949 we felt them keenly, on the eve of our first 
exam week. Some of us didn't make it there, and 
others dropped out later. We found that we had 
eventually lost a third of our original number, for 
one reason or another. 

But exam week passed and the monotony of a 
day in, day out routine settled on us. It became 
unique not only to plebe year. The restlessness and 
boredom of the "dark ages" plagued us for all 
four. It was shot, in the winter and spring of 1949, 
with flashes of light — our first dragging, the in- 
augural parade, hundredth night — but on the whole 
it was an interminable repetition of an old story. 

Our first June Week blossomed with moonlight 
and roses and we suddenly found ourselves third 
classmen. It all happened rather quickly and we 
felt dazed — suddenly free. But half of us were 
whisked away on cruise the next day, and half 
passed into the blissful oblivion of summer leave. 

Youngster cruise was an unforgettable experience 
— later eclipsed by first class cruise — but at the time 
quite impressive. Half of us went to England and 
half to France — and London and Paris will always 
remain dear to the hearts of the Class of 1952. 

But the foreign sojourn was short and the train- 
ing began, and the routine of sea life settled in. 
Scraping paint and scrubbing decks was the order 
of the day — and the decks and bulkheads seemed to 
stretch to eternity. But just as suddenly as it had 
begun, it became a memory and we were back 
studying and reciting and marching. 

If anything, youngster year passed more slowly 
than plebe year, if for nothing else than the fact that 
we had more free time on our hands. We discovered 
the pleasures of dragging — and the week ends were 
looked forward to with more and more gusto. 

In May Admiral Holloway was relieved by Ad- 
miral Hill and June Week followed close after- 
wards. The year had passed slowly — frought with 
academic despair, with physics, history, hops, and 
basketball games — calculus, turbines, tennis, and 
just plain sleeping. And then we were second class. 
Second class summer brought us a variety of 
activities, mostly connected with flying. Half the 
class made the continental air cruise, visiting most 
of the major cities from the Atlantic to the Pacific. 
The other half went to Pensacola for a two week 
training period, their air cruise being cancelled due 
to the outbreak of the Korean War. The flying was 
intriguing and exciting, the travel perhaps even 
more so. We all called it our most enjoyable 

CAMID, the combined amphibious training 
exercise held with the West Point cadets at Little 

Creek, Virginia, 
completed the 
summer. Here 
we met our 
brothers in arms 
and observed this 
important phase 
of warfare by 
participating in 
it. In addition, 
we were given 
an opportunity to 
see the huge mili- 
tary installations 
guarding the en- 
trance to the 
Chesapeake. It was a pleasant way to pass the time 
— and most of us found the barracks room life 
quite tolerable. 

But then we were back marching again, and 
fighting some new academic demons : navigation, 
ordnance, fluid mechanics, and electricity. The fall 
passed like the others had before, concluded with 
another rousing upset of Army, and a long sought 
and welcome Christmas leave. 

And the winter descended on us, and an- 
other spring and another June Week. The 
"dark ages" were again interspersed with 
dragging, with bull sessions, and 
three innovations, the .,.« 

week end, Spring leave 
and the West Point 
trip. It would have 
been another long and 
gloomy period of wait- ■'■--'•* 
ing, were it not for 
those flashes of light 
in the darkness. 

The Ring Dance 
christened June Week 

'""'" Sv^^^j^ 8 

and under the loom of roses and dancing sweet- 
hearts we donned our class symbol. It was an in- 
stant of triumph — the instant of triumph in our 
three years' journey. Only one event would eclipse 
that moment — our graduation a year away. 

We wore our rings proudly — flashing them. But 
with the rings came a new sense of duty, of re- 
sponsibility. We were suddenly first classmen, 
charged with the Brigade, with indoctrination of 
the underclass, with the job of producing in our- 
selves qualities of leadership necessary to a Naval 
officer. It was a big order. 

The summer cruise of 1951 gave us at once our 
first and best opportunity to be leaders. That was 
the criterion. We visited Oslo, Gothenburg, Edin- 
burgh, Rotterdam, Cherbourg, Copenhagen, and 
Lisbon, and had a whale of a time in each port — 
but that was a side issue. The chips were down far 
out at sea. 

And there, on the ships big and little, we served 
as far as practicable in the roles of junior officers. 
We coursed the ships, manned the guns, supervised 
the work details. We learned and we developed 
and we came back to school with a new confidence, 
born of experience as well as theory. 

But school hadn't changed — only we had changed. 
We saw the Academy now through the senior's 
eyes. It was the last year and we were at last on 
top of the ladder. The books were still there and 
so were the marching and the ubiquitous conduct 
reports. But now life was bearable, perhaps pleas- 
ant, for we at last had the goal in sight and it was 
almost within our grasp. 

Sometime in that period of learning and leading, 
of buying insurance and drawing preference num- 

bers, Navy whipped Army for the second year in a 
row. Sometime, also, Christmas leave flew by. It 
was our year — ours was the responsibility. We had 
the plebes and the platoons and companies. We 
marched in parades as before, but somehow it was 
different, for we were now leading them. 

And so the year slipped by. Somehow the term 
papers were turned in, the exams passed, the duty 
assignments settled. The new cars and uniforms 
were bought and even a few fiancees were picked 
out. Somehow we lived through the after dinner 
speaking, the lectures, the endless marching and re- 
citing. Somehow June Week finally came. 

Friday, the sixth of June, 1952, our caps sailed 
into the air in Dahlgren Hall and we had achieved 
our goal. Four years of struggle, of education, of 
trial and error had ended. We stood again as 
neophytes entering a new world But we were 
proud and eager neophytes — as proud and as eager 
as we had been four years before. 

Four years is a long time in the life of a young 
man. It is not easily forgotten. . . .

A ViLAwO never graduates in its entirety, nor has ours. There 
were a certain number that fell behind each year — and, after four 
years, a quarter of the once familiar faces are but memories. Im- 
personal officialdom handles the problem expertly — a thin, black 
line through the name, a word noting the departure. It's that simple.

We graduate, separate, march to the far corners of the 
world — and even the Academy becomes a memory. That 
is the way life is — somehow always progressing, a tramp 
steamer never resting for a moment. The best we can 
hope to do is to shoulder our bags, and, as we trudge 
aboard our ships, cast a lingering backward look at those 
men in our memories, and say, "Wish you were along," 
and then go on.

"It's got to go Monday!" 

"But the artist doesn't have the illustration done yet." 

"Well, I'll go see him. We've got to get this show on 
. the road. Did you get that Bull from Jack?" 

"Not yet, but he said he'd have it ready." 

"How about the story?" 

"What story?" 

"Well, if we don't have one now, someone's going 
to have to burn the midnight oil 'til we get one." 

"The exec said he wanted to see you, Bill." 

"Again? Sometimes I wonder why all editors don't 
dive out of windows and put an end to an obviously 
unwanted species of man." 

"Well, that's the way it goes." 

That's the way it goes, day in and day out. Burning 
the midnight oil; pounding the typewriter to the lonely 
accompaniment of a pack of cigarettes, a pot of coffee, 
and a single dim bulb; scratching at deadlines. Some- 
times it isn't only the editor who has the headaches, 
sometimes the artist fights back encroaching time when 
there is no inspiration; sometimes the actor flails his 
arms at a spoken phrase, trying to squeeze drama out of 
mere words. Sometimes it's the lowly editorial assistant 

pasting copy or proofs on a sheet of paper and wondering 
what it's all about. Sometimes it is the choir, chanting 
the Messiah to the roof of the winter sky and thinking 
idly about the studies that repose undone back in the 
great hall. These men work on, unrewarded, unsung, 
after hours . . . 

They come down to the basement or up to the loft or 
into the dark rooms because they like to. They like to 
toot their horns and beat their drums and pound their 
typewriters. To some the staccato purr of a model air- 
plane engine is music, to others the music is the solemn 
shuffle of a chess match. It is an eternal story of pleasure 
and service — the service coming from the pleasure with 
relaxation the central theme. 

These are the men who entertain the Brigade — the 
men who publish the magazines, put on the shows, play 
the music — not because it has to be done, but because they 
enjoy themselves in the process. After hours, also, appear 
the hobbyists, men who, again, enjoy themselves. That 
can be said for the extracurricular activities, they are 
sufficient unto themselves. Their purpose is their end — 
recreation. It is only incidental that we should give 
thankful tribute to the service they render.

"Hi" Gurney 


To many members of the staff the Log meant the Log 
office. There the issues were conceived at planning meet- 
ings, although at times it seemed as if only old jokes were 
rehashed. There the various departments funneled in 
their offerings and the assemblage was delivered to the 
tender care of Mr. Love. There the long pink galleys, 
the proofs and the ads were squeezed into the alloted 
number of pages. There, each Wednesday, the page 
proofs received their final corrections, and there, the 
following Monday, after the issue was readied for the 
trip to the printer, the post-mortem was held.

Officer Representative 

Every other Saturday and Sunday the editorial staff exchanges ideas over the glue-pots. 
Here we have a few of the heroes of just such a week end. John Dickinson, Ray Coble, 
Bernie Kauderer, and Jess Owens, by the looks of accomplishment, have just created 
a deathless page.

"You may fire when ready, Gridley!" 

To the photographers, the Log meant the dimness 
of the darkroom, trays, and negatives; to others some 
hastily covered sports event, crowds, score, and penciled 
notes. To the artists it meant pen and ink and a search 
for inspiration; to the writers, a plot, words, and a grasp- 
ing for ideas. To the ad men it meant correspondence 
and more correspondence; to the business staff, bills, 
checks, and sometimes red ink; to the AMOD'S, off 
section time spent in delivering the latest issue. 

Every minute was worth it. It is only hoped that the 
end product served its purpose: a little laughter, a few 
tears, and a short diversion for the Brigade. 

The "idea men," Associate Editors Ray Coble and Dave 
Manring, kept the wheels of production oiled. Ray 
handled several issues, while Dave enlightened the girls 
with his "Drag's Handbook." 

With much in common, Lane Rogers and Tom Hamil, Art, Inc., 
and Photo Editor Otto Will put their heads together to solve one of 
those ever-present knotty proportion problems. 

"Colonel" Ed Shiver and Bernie Kauderer hold off the competition 
between Sports and Features long enough for their portraits to be 
preserved for posterity. Note the alert, eager expressions. 

"You say it's five-eighths of a page in width? Where do you get some 
of these ads?" Jess Owens, Managing Editor, and Charlie Brown, 
Advertising Manager, settle a minor problem.

The triumvirate of Genius. Bill Hall, Managing Editor, Carl Head- 
land, Associate Editor, and Mr. Paul Love, the Log and Splinter 
engraver, hold a pow-wow. Lessee, 13 picas by 9 equals . . . 

For the past two years the members of the Brigade 
have had the privilege of having an extra buck and a 
half checked against their accounts. Why? Well, for 
many years mids harassed the Log staff with urges to 
produce an issue every week instead of bi-weekly. The 
situation finally became so uncomfortable for the staff 
that they decided to get even with the Brigade. The re- 
sults of their plan of retribution is now delivered to your 
door every other week and is known by various names, 
the one printed on the cover being the Splinter. 

The Splinter has not always been a popular magazine. 
It has had an uphill battle all the way and sometimes it 
has been good and sometimes very hard That can happen 
to any magazine. Yet once or twice a year the Splinter 
justifies its existence and when the Brigade can check its 

Don Lovell types, John Balogh and Bud Hankins confer, while Pat Lockwood merrily 
chops up a page of effort. From Bud's expression, he's condemning the "Drag of the

They're nuts . . . hip, hip, hooray 
and they threw all their hats away 

laughing long enough it begins to wonder why it said 
such nasty things about the Logs younger brother. 

Nevertheless, the staff of the Splinter deserves a great 
deal of credit. Each time the Splinter arrives at your 
door, it represents the work of the individual staffs . . . 
their struggles to meet copy, photo, art, humor, and 
make-up deadlines . . . the strain to sandwich sundry 
assignments into the academic routine . . . their willing- 
ness to give up much of their liberty time to produce 
each issue on time . . . their patient readiness to listen to 
criticisms and to try to make the Splinter your magazine. 

The staff wish us to thank you for your considerate 
cooperation and they hope that you had some fun, in- 
formation, and sound enjoyment out of the Splinter dur- 
ing its two years of publication. 

Who's up in the darkroom? I dunno. To hazard a guess, I'd say that 
Walt Coakley, Don Grifhng, Joe Anderson, and Chuck Morris should 
be up there slaving over a hot drier. 

Where would the Splinter be without sports? Better yet, where 
would the sports be without Ned Snyder, Ev Truax, Harry Bergbauer 
and John McWilliam? 

Bob Kassel and Mike Kaye iron out a minor difficulty 
encountered when the editor unwittingly assigned both 
features to the same page. 

And here we have the men who hold up the structure. Without an 
efficient circulation department a magazine is nothing. Ben Coski 
and Dave Jenkins saw to it that the Log and Splinter traveled.

Once more, the winter social season ended in a cascade 
of applause for the Masqueraders. This year's produc- 
tion, the wartime Broadway hit, "Dear Ruth," filled 
Mahan Hall with laughter its four performances. Bill 
Zobel, in the double role of director and star, gave the 
Brigade a superlative accomplishment in each. His por- 
trayal of Judge Wilkins will be long remembered here- 
abouts. Nor will the performances of Dick Troutmann, 
Dave Miller, and Edgar Chase, who tackled doubly 
difficult tasks as the female leads, be forgotten. 

The Midshipmen Thespians were aided and abetted by 
the unsung men behind the stage setting. The juice, 
stage, and property and make-up gangs are seldom heard 
from, but no production would be possible without their 
help. All the bright lights crew worked long and hard 
hours to produce these few minutes entertainment, and 
they are amply justified in receiving our accolade of praise.

Study hour is a time to write letters. That is, it is 
an appropriate time if you've done your studies. Then 
the room settles down to absolute quiet and old thoughts, 
dear thoughts, flow from your pen. All is tranquillity. 
You are at peace with the world . . . 

Dearest — 

Outside, the night is beautiful. It reminds me of 

the last time I was with you, last summer. Remember — 

"Say John, did you do prob sixty- five?" 

"Which one is that?" 

"The one on transient circuits." 

"Yeah, it's fruit." 

. . . Remember how we — 

"Where is it?" 

"In my skinny book." 

. . . Remember how we drove out to the beach 

under that full moon — 

"Say John. Who is Mephistopheles anyway?" 

"He's the devil." 

"I know, but any particular kind of devil?" 

"Prof said that in Faust he was only a third rate devil. 
A sort of sub-lieutenant." 

Dearest — 

Outside there's a full moon. It reminds me of last 

summer — 

"John, how did you get this time constant?" 

"Just plug the formula . . . comes out on the nose." 

"Oh, I see. I forgot to use minus e." 

. . . Remember when we drove down to the beach 
that night? It was the last night I was home — 
"Say, Bill, what does Goethe mean by a red lion, a 
lily and a crystal queen?" 
"Look in the notes." 
"In the back of the book." 

. . . Life here goes on in the same old way. 

There is very little that is new to tell you. 

I only wish you could be here — 
"Harry, what's the steam assignment?" 
"Look on the assignment sheet." 
"John, could I see your assignment sheet?" 
"It's in my steam book." 

. . . If you were here life could be — 
"Where's your steam book?" 
"Look under the blotter." 

. . . Life could be so much better. I know — 
"John, have you seen my lighter fluid?" 
"No, I haven't. Could you pleast stop disturbing me?" 

... I know I miss you. I think — 
"Shake around to see who goes down and gets coffee.

"Yeah, count me in." 

"You lose, John. Make mine with cream." 
"I'll take it black."

For four years we looked at it there, hanging tenuously 
across the river. We watched it silently, thinking all the 
time, wondering, wishing. It nosed out the land, its 
supports describing porpoise-like arcs out of the water, 
and faded into the opposite shore. It disappeared over 
the hill there, in a long gentle curve of highway that led 
into the great beyond. It was, of course, no more than 
a symbol — the symbol of that great beyond. But a 
symbol becomes a giant thing . . . 

Every day it was there, mocking us, as it were, laugh- 
ing at us, sneering at us from its prominence of insensi- 
bility. But its taunts weren't scorned, its mocking for- 
gotten, for there were other things. We went our way, 
our thoughts drifted to other things and the longing it 
symbolized was forgotten. 

But a great and natural emotion can't be fought down. 
In the twilight of the day, when the sinking sun cast long 
shadows from the flaming trees, and the western sky 
was an indescribable thing of pale yellow and naked blue, 
the book-weary mind would shift from the importunate

the lights would wink on all of a sudden, and the river

Out of the depths of the unconscious the mind struggles 
to discern the nature of the noise. Faintly at first it is 
heard. Faintly, half-real, as if from a great distance — 
oozing into the somnolent senses in a strange sort of 
sonic osmosis. The mind is only half awake; half in the 
gloom of the real room — half in the fantasy of the far- 
away, dream world of sleep. Half sentient the mind 
hears the bells. 

The mind is heavy, reactions flabby. But the summons 
is there — the distant jangling, clanging clamor and the 
mind remotely recognizes it. The body is asleep yet — 
unaware that reality has claimed it again. The human 
organism becomes a semi-organized thing. The half- 
awake part hears the bells as an alarm, senses action, tries 
to pull the dreaming part of mind and body up from the 
spiralling well of slumber. 

The body lies there, obstinate, fighting the new de- 
mands, enjoying the softness of pillow and linen, grasp- 
ing the momentary luxury of relaxation, reluctant to 
exert itself. Sleepy nerves quiver from instinct and urge 
a movement — the body hunches upward. The eyes 
flicker open. 

There is silence in the room — all is silence save the 

clamor and clangor of the discordant bells. Their noise 
is all pervading. The mind winces at it and the dreaming 
part questions. 

The question : Can this be real? Is the day here again? 

What is reality? In a semi-conscious stupor the mind 
struggles for truth and in the clarity of its haze old ques- 
tions give new answers and life and eternity are resolved 
and as quickly forgotten. 

And as quickly the realization strikes home. A bolt of 
light stabs past the tired eyelids. The mind is fully awake 
— cognizant of what has happened. Only the body fights 
the change. 

Only a minute longer — a minute to convince the ex- 
hausted body what must be done. It is so comfortable 
here. Weariness is so much — sleep so soothing. Why 
this clamor? 

The body sags onto wobbly legs — defeated. Leaden 
limbs move about confusedly. Silence accompanies the 
stiff, stumbling movements. The acts are mechanical — 
the mind does not follow or lead. The mind only asks

"No quiz today, gentlemen, so we'll try to get straight- 
ened out on the polyphase synchronous motor. First, are 
there any questions?" 

The instructor was lean, gray and ascetic looking. His 
glasses clung to the beak of his thin, pointed nose. His 
voice was wheezing, coming from far away. He looked 
as if he had spent his life inside the stator of a polyphase 
synchronous motor. 

"The rotor of the motor is exactly like the squirrel cage 
induction motor, except that it has on the periphery ..." 

Spring was wafting into the classroom, and the smell 
of the new life was there. A new-born fly wafted in 
behind the smell of new-born spring. It lighted on the 
desk in the front of the room and started scratching its 

"The stator of the synchronous motor is also like the 
stator of the induction motor ..." 

The fly lost interest in his forelegs and was crawling 
for the ashtray. It peered over the top and teetered. Then 
it plunged in and sniffed at a week-old butt.

"Now the chief advantage of the synchronous motor 
is, as its name implies, a constant speed ..." 

The fly was buzzing around the professors withered 
head. It landed on his right temple, rubbed its forelegs 
again and edged over his brow. He gave an ineffective 
shrug of his eyebrow and the fly took off, making lazy 
sorties about his left ear. 

"If phase AB has an A. C. voltage of 100 volts, and 
phase BC is the reference voltage, also of 100 volts, what 
is phase CA? ..." 

The fly was making a broad sweep around the room, 
apparently looking for more ashtrays. It lighted on a 
desk and walked across an engraving of a two-phase 
series A. C. motor. It seemed absorbed in the rotor con- 
nections. It stopped. 

"Phase current IA'C is the opposite of ICA'. This can 
be seen by observing the vector triangle ..." 

The fly flew off, backwards, it seemed, and once more 
circled the room. Then with a burst of energy it buzzed 
the professor and darted out the window and into the 
new spring. It was tired of the classroom.

The silence is punctuated by the lonely advance of the 
clock's minute hand. A quarter to twelve. The slight 
figure stands arms akimbo under the clock and thinks. He 
is silhouetted against the single wan corridor light. 

Two more hours! I've already been on two and a 
quarter. And there's nothing to do . . . 

Nothing to do? How many times was there nothing 
to do? 

Of course there were the deck tiles. You had to start 
at the seaward end and work from there. It took more 
time to count them one by one instead of multiplying. 
Let's see now. Start here. One, two, three, four . . . 


"Fourth deck, aye . . . Call operator forty-eight? . . . 
Make it by note, he's at the hop." 

Fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen . . . 


"Why was Johnson absent from taps? . . . Wait one." 

"His wife says he went to the late movie . . . Oh 
you've found it . . . Okay, I'll tell him." 

"Two seventy-seven, seventy-eight, seventy-nine, 
eighty . . . 


"First regiment has early Episcopal Church party, 

Wonder how many holes there are in that register? 
Never thought to count them before . . . Hmmm . . . 
One, two, three, four, five . . . 

No, the light's bad. How about the poem? It wasn't 
a bad poem, as poetry goes. Started it the last time I had 
second section. 

"There once was a mid by the name of Wake 
Who met his end as a fourth deck mate. 
They didn't know that he did depart 
'Til they found his bones 'neath the trash can cart 

Well, it sounded good a month ago . . . 


Twelve-thirty two. Agony. 

"Dear Marge : Please overlook my not having written, 
for I really think I had a good excuse. The fact is that 
I was pinned to a girl in Baltimore, but she became en- 
gaged to a firstie and I'm now available again. I knew 
I could count on you Marge ..." 


"Dear Dad: Your check came just in time, but I 
found that it wasn't enough to cover my present needs. 
I could use about twenty more. Of course there's no 
hurry, just so I get it by Wednesday. Better still, why 
not open a bank account for me." 


"Fourth Deck!" 

"The taps boards? Sure, thanks, I've been looking for 
them. In fact, welcome." 


One twenty-nine. Eternity. 

What a moon ! What a night to be doing something

Rog banged open the door and sagged into the room, 
dropping himself on a chair and tilting his cap to the back 
of his head. Outside of that he didn't move, but just sat 
there staring at nothing. He looked thoroughly beaten. 

"Bud," he finally said, "I don't see why I do it." 

"Do what?" I asked. 

"Drag, of course. Why on earth do I go through that 
unholy ritual?" 

I was silent, not being able to think of a sensible reply. 

"There's no sense to it," he continued. "It's ridiculous. 
You start going Saturday afternoon and don't stop 'til 
Sunday night — and then you're useless for two days 

"It does seem silly," I said. 

"Look," he said, leaning forward and lighting a cig- 
arette. "What does a guy do? He runs out to the bus 
Saturday noon to meet his girl. I mean he runs. She's 
there and she's beautiful, he thinks, and all of a sudden 
things look pretty nice. The guy thinks this dragging 
stuff's the greatest." 

I nodded assent. 

"So," he continued, "he takes her bags to the house, 
takes her to dinner, runs over to Dahlgren Hall to catch 
the game, runs up to Smoke Hall to the informal, and 
then runs out to the house again. Mind you, this is all 
in the afternoon. 

"Then he runs back to formation, back to the house, 
out to dinner, and over to the hop. You know how he 
runs after the hop. He sets a new record for the quarter 
mile. And when he finally sinks exhausted in the rack he 

finds that all he wants to do is sleep — sleep for a week." 

Joe, our other roommate, turned over in the sack and 
joined the discussion. "He's got the right idea," he said. 

"But can he sleep?" Rog continued, ignoring Joe. 
"No, he's up at dawn the next morning, off to breakfast, 
off to church. And after it's all over, does he go back to 
the rack? No, he meets the girl and goes for a long walk. 

"Well, about three in the afternoon, he figures that 
he's been looking at the girl for twelve out of his last 
nineteen hours awake. He begins to notice things about 
her. He finds he doesn't like the way she does her hair, 
or the shape of her nose. He suggests they go back to the 
house for awhile and sit on the couch where it's dark. But 
she says no, how about a little dancing in Smoke Hall? 
Naturally he agrees. 

"And so the hours drag by and he finally parks her 
aboard the bus and waves a satisfying goodbye. He drags 
himself back to his sack and collapses useless for two 
days. His dragging week end is over." 

"Well," I said. "Maybe you're right. Why do you 

"I dunno, Bud," he said, "I've been trying to figure it 

He sat silently staring at the ashtray; I turned back to 
my Skinny book; Joe turned over. Rog crushed out his 
old butt and lit another. 

"Y'know, Bud," he said, "I wonder if Mary Lou could 
come down for the Valentine Hop." 

Like an old prizefighter, I guess, they keep coming 
back for more.

Leave is a period of so many days, hours, and minutes. 
It is difficult to measure it in any other way. The first 
few days pass quickly, happily — but then the counting 
begins. Each minute is grasped — and when the leave is 
over and the midshipman sinks exhausted and dejected 
to a chair in his room he begins counting again, to the 
day when another leave shall begin. 

In no way can the return let down be rationalized. 
Leave — summer or Christmas — means too much to be 
forgotten easily. The few carefree days at home, the 
beach in the summer time, the loose freedom of a sport 
shirt and loafers linger on — keep calling the young man 
back. A few days, perhaps a month, and the routine is 
accepted again — but without the promise of leave the 
interminable grind of study and regimentation would 
be difficult to sustain. 

To the midshipman, leave is a different thing than a 
vacation. It is not just a change of scene, a home for the 
holidays. The times allotted are too short, the year so 
long, and the routine such a burden that the midshipman 
looks forward to and appreciates more his periods of 
freedom than any college youth ever could. It does not 
cast discredit on the school any the more — for the mid- 
shipman comes home wearing a uniform with a gleam 
of pride in his eye. But the pride is insignificant to the 
embryo officer — what matters is that he is home once 
more. It makes him appreciate that possession more. Of 
the many events occurring during four years — it is diffi- 
cult to see how those idyllic leaves can ever be forgotten.

The words trail up out of the textbook through the

flutter a moment or two and then fly open. The mind 
starts resolutely. This Skinny must be finished!

The eyes close finally and the words change themselves

them — laughing, dancing, crying, kissing, pouting. 
There is money flowing freely, and cars and mansions, 
and golf every day, and sleeping 'til noon. Sometimes 
purple shadows creep across the sleepy, wandering mind

She takes your hand and turns and looks up invitingly

To hear them talk we were a school of automatons, of 
wooden soldiers, of row upon row of machines working 
with precision. It was a factory grinding out seven hun- 
dred finished products each year. We were cogs in a wheel 

— caught in a greater, inexorable wheel, an educational 
leviathan — a soulless, unheeding merry-go-round . . . 

There could be no Plato over the coffee cups — the 
merits of Kant in back rooms and beer halls — atheism 
and religion and the atomic bomb and smoky rooms or 
long walks in the springtime. Green four walls boxing 
in thinking young men — the pamphleteers — the spon- 
taneous, self-conscious theorizing about life — thinking, 
the ancient heritage of mankind . . . 

Could there be room for freedom of thought in a 
strictly regimented organization? Was the concept for- 
eign to the military mind? No — thought can't be regi- 
mented — nor will it let itself be. The sacrifice that is 
made to devote a lifetime to the military service is a 
great thing — but the freedom that the military is sworn 
to preserve is not forgotten in the sacrifice — only com- 
promised. The thinking goes on in its great, dignified 
tradition — and philosophies evolve amid marching feet 
and uniformed ranks. 

There were the bull sessions between the green walls 
and olive drab lockers and polished decks with war, 
women and wisdom drifting in the idle air — the con- 
fessions and confidences exchanged over ten cent coffee — 
bathrobes and pajamas and bulldog pipes and tobacco- 
stained Aristotle. The wonder of the ages, of dead men 
and dead times, resurrected: "What am I doing here? 
Where are we going" . . .? 

Socrates in the E. D. squad — Shakespeare after re- 
veille — the unexpected, the incongruous, their repressible 
human mind . . .

It is brought to the attention of the readers 
that dividing quotations by John Paul Jones, as pre- 
sented in this book, are not authentic nor are they 
excerpts of his letter to the Marine Committee of 
Congress on January 21, 1777, in which he out- 
lined officer's qualifications. This letter, reports 
and other letters were reconstructed by A. C. Buell, 
who was a great admirer of Jones, and precipitated 
into the now famous letter, "Qualifications of the 
Naval Officer," by, Buell said, John Paul Jones. 
Buell is incorrect in that Jones did not write this 
letter, but historians believe that it correctly ex- 
presses the sentiments of Jones. Insofar that it is 
not necessary for a yearbook to be a historical 
analysis, and I preferred lucid quotations for the 
benefit of the readers, the general theme of this 
book is based on Buell's reconstructed version. 

For an accurate and detailed account, reference 
may be made to the Naval Institute Proceedings, 
LIV, No. 305, "Two Notes on John Paul Jones," by 
L. H. Bolander.

Suffering from a lack of battle experience, and plagued 
by penalties and fumbles, Navy definitely had the edge 
on a smaller Yale team in the opening game, but could 
squeeze no more than a tie from the tenacious Bulldogs. 
Next Saturday against Princeton, it was Kazmaier versus 
Navy, and Kazmaier won the day. A late rally, high- 
lighted by 58 and 40 yard pay-off jaunts by Frank Brady 
and Zug Zastrow, was not quite good enough to break 
up the Tigers' winning streak. Rice trimmed the Navy 
handsomely, more so than the score indicated. Then

Northwestern handed us another defeat, in which long 
Wildcat runs provided the difference. Tiny Dean Smith 
proved to be a gridiron giant, with some handsome 
running in this game. Pennsylvania provided the climax 
to our frustration. Eager First and Second Battalion 
rooters cheered on their team in Franklin Field, only to 
see it fall in the last quarter to two quick Quaker 

The Notre Dame precision machine, not quite as 
omnipotent as usual, found the going tough. Although 
Leahy's computer came up with the correct solutions 
frequently enough to win the game, Fritz Davis and 
Walt Gragg threw a few monkey-wrenches into the 
machinery on occasion. The Midshipmen were on the 
way up. The Maryland contest, in which the Terrapins 
found themselves behind for the only time all year after 
Brady's scoring punt return, was a continuation of the 
comback surge, though Navy did not win. In the last 
game before Army, the team had the satisfaction of 
decisively defeating a scrappy Columbia eleven. Long 
runs by Smith and Vic Vine punctuated the offense,

Kukowski left the defensive line free to swarm in on

Bob Zastrow never quite equalled his performances of 
youngster and second class year in 1951. Nevertheless, 
when Navy men thought of football, they thought of 
Zug, and opponents were plagued with the prospect that 
one Saturday he might explode against them. He 
received All American ratings his third class year, and 
performed with near perfection in the great 1950 Army- 
Navy game. We used to laugh at the battered and 
amazed victims who tried to tackle him, and admired 
the ease with which he tossed off a long pass. 

Paul Tetreault was perhaps the outstanding personality 
in the line. A special sort of "moose" call from the 
stands was the echo of his successful smack-down style 
of play. Fritz Davis came through with splendid work 
at tackle on both offense and defense. Herb Tiede and 
Bob Hempel were bright new stars on the flanks, and

a bright future for himself with a scrappy performance 
at defensive halfback. 

Mike Sorrentino was the little guy who came into 
his own this past year as a fine field general and passer 
in his own right. Captain Frankie Hauff fired up the 
team, which often had every right to be discouraged, but 
never was. Bob Cameron developed into a punting 
specialist of note. It was a rare Sunday when the statis- 
tics showed Navy on the short end in his department. 

In a sense, it is unjust to cite individual standouts, 
because, this year in particular, so many contributed 
their share to the efforts of the team. Every member of 
the squad is privileged to wear the N-star, because every- 
one of them played in the victorious game December 

Finally, a special word of thanks goes to Coach Eddie 
Erdelatz and his assistants for their splendid work in 
welding the players into a team.

fall of '51. The seeds of defeat were plentiful and bitter. 
We had a good team, winning approval, disapproval, 
and downright astonishment from all sides, but never 
seeming to win a football game. Sports writers made 
remarks, half sarcastic, half true, like the crack by 
Washington Post's Bill Haight about Navy's talent for 
playing a "rowboat first half and a battleship second 
half." Princeton's Tigers, terrors of the Ivy League, 
nearly lost their undefeated record in Thompson Stadium, 
but finally managed to scrape out a victory, -with dulled 
claws. Maryland, perhaps the nation's number one foot- 
ball team, could attest that the Navy Blue and Gold 
provided them their toughest season opposition. If 
you had taken the right two minutes out of the middle of 
the Notre Dame game and tacked them on the end, 
Navy would have left the field with an upset instead of a 
loss . . . but that is not the way it was meant to be. 

However, there was a triumph in our defeats. For 
the Class of 1952, football seasons had been lean times.

Northwestern's Jecha, Steeb, Rich, and Captain McRae find Zug a hard man to bring down 

Gradually during our four years we came to realize 
there was a pride in losing with pride. We had a team, 
and a class, and a Brigade that had never heard of the 
word quit. We took pride in the fact that the spectators 
stayed in their seats till the game was over to watch 
a team hopelessly behind scrap for a Brigade that forgot 
it was time to stop yelling. Our team, often so far 
behind at halftime that it should have returned to the 
field with its tail between its legs, instead rebounded 
with a sock that only the Brigade could understand. 

Spirit is something that one doesn't put in words. 
Written down, it sounds sentimental and silly. But 
to be a part of an organization that has spirit is to ex- 
perience one of life's real thrills. Don't try to define it; 
it is indefinite, infinite. But it is as tangible as a football 
upset, a runner's sprint, or a battered boxer's comeback. 
Even at the Naval Academy, spirit is not a continuous 
thing. Nor can it be turned on and off by personal whim. 
But when it is needed, it is there. We don't have ex- 
clusive possession of it, but we claim to have our share. 
Spirit is one of the genuine miracle-workers of ths

Providing a little added impetus to Brigade spirit, the 
cheerleaders were the consolidating force behind our yells at 
football games and pep rallies. Hi Gurney was the inspira- 
tional and prolific M. C. He was capably supported by the 
other members of the Brigade Activities Committee: T. A.

plied by Pat MacDonald and Tom Bakke. It was appropriate 
that they were chosen to flank him in as much as they had 
guarded the wings of the varsity football team in previous 
seasons. Bakke had captained the 1950 team in his last year of 
eligibility. This fall he aided the varsity in a coaching ca- 
pacity, while MacDonald served as end coach for the 150's.

For the past six years, Army-Navy games have seemingly been controlled by a 
mysterious jinx. Whether one attributes it to the color of the jersey the winning 
team was wearing, or the side of the field the President was sitting, or what, the 
fact remains that since Navy pulled its astonishing near-upset of Army in 1946, 
the victory, at least the moral victory, has alternated between the two schools each 
year despite odds, forecasts, and comparative records. Each time in the past, the 
Cadets have been the embarrassed party, for until this year, they have perennially 
been heavy favorites. In 1948, a victoryless Navy team tied undefeated Army 
21-21, and in 1950 they pulled their fantastic 14-2 upset. Now it was 1951 and 
the Cadets' turn to win. Stripped of their powerful machine of previous years, it 
was their chance for an upset; they actually had a better seasonal record, and could 
boast of better performances against our mutual opponents. Although the game 
would not be one of football giants, it had all the indications of being the best 
matched contest in many years, and on this basis 98,000 people stormed Phila- 
delphia's municipal stadium December first. All hands were in for a surprise!

From the moment of the opening kickoff, there was magic in the 
touch of the Midshipmen, and they could do no wrong. The foot- 
ball that Navy men had come to believe always rebounded the 
other way suddenly began popping into their arms with unerring 
accuracy. Army's Fred Meyers, appropriately rushed, contributed 
one football to the cause, passing it to John Raster for his run to 
glory. The same run also squelched the Cadets' only serious threat 
of a comeback. 

Scoring honors were distributed evenly among Raster, Snyder, 
Perkins, Brady, Vine, Smith, and Fischer, each of whom tallied 
six points, a fitting demonstration that this was a genuine team

victory. Snyder worked hardest for his, kicking every conversion 
faultlessly. Touchdowns were scored in every conceivable fashion: 
short plunges, spectacular runs, completed passes, and a recovered 
fumble in the end zone for the glory of the line. 

Navy had fourteen points before West Point called a play from 
scrimmage, a fact which keynoted the tenor of the whole game. 
Three new highs in Army-Navy competition will put the game in 
the record books for many years to come; the highest score, the 
worst trimming of an Army team, and the longest run of the series 
were registered in the memorable game.

Nineteen fifty-one grid fortunes gave Navy's Junior Varsity 
squad only a .500 won-lost average, but the "Poolies" came 
through with their big job. Week after week Coach Foster set 
up his squad in the style of future varsity opponents to prep 
Coach Eddie's charges. Week after week the red-shirted gridders 
gave their best with only a few games scheduled to test their 
plays. But when those games did come the plays were surely 
well-tested, by such former headliners as Reds Bagnell, potent 
Penn State and Bainbridge mail packer. 

The ultimate goal for which every J V strives is a varsity 
berth. Many succeed; others remain with the Junior Squad for 
their entire Navy football career. But all play a vital role in 
Navy's pigskin program.

Facing the toughest schedule in the East, the cross 
country team turned out an average record of three wins, 
and three losses in dual competition. The hot and cold 
Navy team lost some close ones, and had their finest day 
against Penn, when their eight runners took the first eight 
places. The team demonstrated its strength when it 
finished a sizzling third in New York's annual heptago- 
nal meet of Ivy League schools. However, their score 
couldn't match that of the rambling West Point Cadets 
who, with possibly the best team in the country, captured 
first place. 

Second classman Charlie Cooke consistently paced 
the Navy Squad. Other mainstays were Captain Pat

Herb Wooley, and youngster John Hurt.

While the varsity was suffering a rugged season, the 
150-pound football team continued to dominate its 
circuit. Eastern Intercollegiate, if not national cham- 
pions again this year, they probably boast as fine a life- 
time record as any team in the country of any size. Since 
their inception in 1946, they have dominated 150-pound 
play in every year but one, cinching five E. I. champion- 
ships and a national title, and have compiled a lifetime 
record of 29 wins, one loss, and a tie. Overshadowed by 
the more publicized varisty, here is a team that plays 
strictly because it likes to play football, and with as much 
fire as any team with 50,000 rooters watching it.

End sweeps like this one made Rutgers tough, but Navy won, 14-0 

The Mighty Mites' four victories of the season became 
consecutively harder to win. An easy opener with Prince- 
ton was followed by the Penn game, which had to be 
played in an ice-cold rain. The Rutgers contest was a 
seesaw struggle, until the Scarlet finally cracked in the 
fourth period after Ray Bright scored on a 70-yard punt 
return. The last game against Cornell was a grinding 
near-stalmate, in which sheer stamina finally provided 
the winning edge for Navy. 

Quarterback Dick Nein, a fine field general, led the 
team throughout the season. Outstanding on the offensive 
platoon were end Cliff Thomas and backs Gene Van 
Hoof and Herbie Nachtrab. Leading the defensive squad 
were veteran ends Joe Carbone and Wendy Rivers and 
center Jim Gooding.

The association football contingent of the Naval Academy com- 
piled a respectable, though not breath-taking, record for the season. 
A relatively inexperienced unit, the team had its sparkling moments, 
such as the afternoon they broke the Swarthmore winning streak, and 
put them out of the running for the national title. But Navy found 
trouble trying to pit courage against the experience of the Princeton 
and Penn State combinations. The final disappointment was a dis- 
piriting 3-1 loss to a capable crew of booters from West Point. 

Goalie Rex Pickett generated the defense, aided by Ed Cashman, a 
rising star, who turned in some superb performances at fullback his 
first varsity year. Captain Gordie Jayne, high scorer with six goals, 
sparked the forward line and was chosen All-American for the 1951

With the first seven men on the team having graduated 
and only a single letterman returning, the 1951 basketball 
season looked like a year of rebuilding. Coach Ben Carne- 
vale's bleak preseason prophesies and his starting line-up 
composed of three plebes and two youngsters only added 
more gloom to the dark outlook. Then to the amaze- 
ment of everyone these green underclassmen began 
knocking down opposition right and left. 

Five straight wins set the season's pace; the team did 
not lose until they bowed to tournament champions 
N. C. State at the Dixie Classic. Two losses against a 
single victory at the tournament and a discouraging 
defeat by Maryland immediately after leave were soon 
forgotten when Navy subdued four straight opponents, 
including a strong Georgetown five. An overtime loss 
to Duke and a three-point edging by Franklin and Mar- 
shall were two of the best games of the season, even 
though the Midshipmen left the court the losers. Gain- 
ing momentum from the experience of each succeeding 
game, they wound up the season with victories over 
powerful Columbia and Notre Dame quintets and a

stubborn Army five. Navy's successful season of 16 vic- 
tories against 7 defeats does not begin to tell the story, 
for this year's team broke more records, eighteen in all, 
than any squad in Academy history. 

The nucleus around which the team revolved was John 
Clune, whose deadly shooting brought him All-America 
team mention his first varsity year. People commented 
that he was slow, unexciting, until he started to pile up 
points with every kind of shot. Clune broke Bill Wilson's 
old season record with six games left to play, and finished 
the year with a phenominal 487 points, 21.2 points per 

Complementing Clune was Don Lange, the other half 
of Navy's double pivot combination and the longest, 
leanest piece of human ever to wear a Navy uniform. 
When Lange was on, it was literally impossible to stop 
him. His guards would stand by in helpless frustration 
as he hooked in basket after basket with either hand. 
Both Lange and Clune broke the former single game 
scoring record held jointly by Wilson and Shugart so

often it became commonplace. Lange's high of 36 points 
against Duke paled All-American Dick Groat's efforts 
in that game, and established a new record for Navy 
players to shoot at. 

The backcourt assistance was most often provided 
by Ed Hogan, rebounder and ball handler par excellence, 
and plebes Ken McCally and Larry Wigley. Their ag- 
gressive defense was matched by the dogged guarding of 
Bill Hoover and Tom Wells, who were also two of the 
fanciest drivers around. Jim Van Scoyoc's clever dribbling 
and cool court tactics made him particularly valuable for 
closing-minute ball control. Captain Fritz Davis' ex- 
perience and enthusiasm was inspirational to the hustling 
young team. Don Kniss was one of the hardest working 
men on the court; tip-offs and rebounds were his specialty. 

The youthful team, who played like veterans, were one 
of the scrappiest groups ever to trod a Navy court. Coach 
Carnevale molded his material swiftly and deftly into a 
team that promises to break more records in the years to

being selected to lead the 1952 Olympic wrestlers, guided 
his Navy charges to six victories against two defeats.

the formidable opposition furnished by strong Maryland 
and Illinois squads. Cornell surprised Navy, tossing a

awarded to Cornell on decisions. 

Navy rebounded from defeat to fell a surprised Lehigh

tops in the East. Only Pete Blair's victory and Jesser's 
draw prevented Navy from being blanked. Franklin and

Leading off in the 123-pound class was Bob Sutley, 
who captained the team for the second consecutive year. 
Sutley did not miss a match during his varsity career. He 
was followed by Herb Crane, Art Jesser, both third class- 
men, and Dick Gregory, a first classman, who shared 
honors in the 130 and 137-pound divisions, depending 
on the opposition. Jesser was the only man on the squad 
to go through the season without a loss. Two plebes, 
Joe Gattuso and Bob Hamilton, along with youngsters 
John Godek and Dick Wise, provided strength in the 
147, 157, and 167-pound classes. 

Plebe Pete Blair held down the key 177-pound position. 
He boasted four pins in seven season contests and lost but 
one match, a 2-0 decision. Although beaten by Graveson 
of Yale in the semi-finals of the Eastern Intercollegiates, 
he won the consolation bout for third place honors. Evan 
Parker filled the shoes vacated by heavy weight Jim Hunt 
to round out the Navy squad, which suffered but one pin 
among them during the entire season.

Navy fencers again brought home the victories in 1952 
for a traditionally successful campaign. The crowning 
achievement was a decisive drubbing of the Army 
weapons men in the finale of the year. The Blue and 
Gold came from behind, winning nine straight bouts and 
overcoming a 6-4 deficit. 

Triumph over the Greylegs was especially satisfying 
since the West Pointers had edged Navy earlier in the 
Pentagonal meet. However, at the Pentagonals Navy 
set a record by being the first college to win all three 
individual championships. Zimolzak, Lykes, and Cap- 
tain Smith took the sabre, epee, and foil titles respec- 
tively. It was here also that Navy won the sabre cup for

All season long it was Smith, Zimolzak, and Lykes 
who lead the pinpushers. New York University and 
Pennsylvania, both generally considered among the best 
teams in the East, tagged Navy's swashbucklers with 
their defeats. Successful as the season was, it pales some- 
what in comparison with the previous fantastic record 
compiled by MacDonough Hall teams under Coaches 
Fiems and Daladrier. Starting with only four lettermen 
at the season's onset, they built up their squad with 
newcomers, who show promise for several years to come.

When Navy men thought of Gymnastics in 1952., 
they thought of Hal Lewis. Yet when champion Lewis 
broke his leg after the first two meets, the team carried 
on and finished a winning season of four victories and 
three defeats. The team scored all of its wins by de- 
cisive margins. They lost a close one to Syracuse, and 
lost more conclusively to Penn State. Despite outstand- 
ing performances from the whole Navy squad, the Black 
Knights of West Point took the last meet and reaffirmed 
their supremacy in gymnastics in the East.

Bill Burr was the sprint specialist 

Perhaps the 1952 swim season was not the best in the 
annals of Naval Academy history, but surely it must have 
been the one with the most promise for success in future 
years. All but one of the season's thirteen letter winners 
and several sparkling plebe standouts will be in the lineup 
for 1953. Darkest moment of the season was a loss to 
West Point; the score belies the hairline closeness of the 
match. Brightest spot of the picture was the classic div- 
ing of youngster Jerry Anderson. He won eight of the 
nine meets in which he participated, and in the process 
outpointed 1951 's Intercollegiate Diving Champion. 

The Academy 440-yard relay record fell under the 
swift strokes of Burr, Rindahl, Gray, and Reardon. 
Neale Bird got into the mark-smashing act with his 
2 minute 28.3 second time for the 200-yard breast stroke. 
Teammate Jan Vandersluis tallied 57 points to rank as 
leading point gainer.

Records fell by the way as the 1952 sharpshooters 
waded through some of the best marksmen the nation 
had to offer. Blue and Gold riflemen shot a new high 
for a Naval Academy team with 1425 during the same 
meet that MIT scored 1432 to set a range mark. Indi- 
vidually, Don Holmes, Captain Dick Lyons, and Pete 
Stark consistently approached the 300 goal throughout 
the campaign. Climax of the season was the high scoring 
meet with Maryland. The Navy targeteers dropped this 
one by a scant 14 points. Hardest loss to take, of course, 
was at the hands of an eagle-eyed West Point squad. 
Nevertheless the season, which is Coach Johnny Bran- 
zell's twenty-second, can rightfully be called a good one.

Traditionally, Navy has produced good pistol teams 
and 1952 was no exception. Captain Welsh and team- 
mates Robbins, Binney, and Roach knocked out the 
bull's-eye most consistently to lead their lead-slinging 
aggregation. As is their custom, Navy fired almost en- 
tirely shoulder-to-shoulder competition with service 
school teams. In addition to these contests the straight- 
shooters kept in practice firing 24 postal matches with 
teams all over the country. 

The old Army hex worked a two-point victory for the 
West Pointers 1309-1307 in the final interscholastic 
match. But the pistoleers came back after that edging to 
win first place in the important U. S. Revolver Associa- 
tion tourney.

Squash ranks as the fastest growing sport at the Naval 
Academy. Backed by the active interest of Admiral 
Hill, who has built two fine new courts and provided 
facilities for spectators for the first time, the game has 
won a host of new fans and produced a group of enthu- 
siastic participants. 

A season's record of seven wins and three losses marks

There is one team at the Naval Academy whose mem- 
bers receive Navy N's, eat at training tables, and are 
trained by the finest coaches in collegiate circles, but never 
meet an opponent from another school. These are the 
men who each year participate in the Brigade Boxing 
Tournament. Each winner truly earns his monogram, 
for no one trains harder or meets keener competition in 
his sudden death quest for the championship. Before 
Navy withdrew from intercollegiate boxing in 1941, it 
had established one of the finest reputations in the coun- 
try. Navy's teams of former years were trained by the 
legendary Spike Webb, who still guides the tournaments

Breaking the ice in January to fighting the sweat in 
June — it's all part of training a ton of manpower to drive 
a 300-pound shell faster than anybody else. All it takes 
is a boat sixty feet long, two feet wide, and an eighth of 
an inch thick, with eight lean, powerful oarsmen each 
wielding a twelve-foot sweep, and a small coxswainful 
of dynamite in the back seat to run the show. 

There are no stars in crew. No other sport demands 
such precision and teamwork, and every man in the boat 
knows that he can be no better than the man pulling 
behind and ahead of him. One careless move, one weak 
link, one fault in one man can determine the all-impor- 
tant difference of a deck length at the finish line. An 
oarsman must have the grace of a gymnast, the timing 
of a diver, the intestinal fortitude of a tackle, the con- 
centration of a pitcher, and the endurance of a marathon 
runner, with enough left at the finish for a hundred yard 
dash. And every man in the boat must have a team 
spirit that no other sport can match. Literally hundreds 
of miles go under the sweeps before the blisters harden 
into callouses, before a crew of eight can swing as one 
man, before every eye can pick up the precise timing of 
the stroke, before wind is developed and muscles are 
wiry-hard for the three mile grind. 

Crew is one of the oldest sports in the United States 
and has carried much tradition down through the years. 
The Naval Academy has been racing Harvard and 
Pennsylvania for the Adams Cup (donated by Charles 

Commander Taeusch, officer representative, Coach Callow, 
and Captain John Pearson 

169 jfc 

The daily ritual of putting the shell into the water ends as the crew is shoved off 

Francis Adams, Secretary of the Navy in 1929) for 
nearly thirty years, and the old grads can remember the 
famous Poughkeepsie Regatta being raced before the 
turn of the century. It would be safe to bet that no cox- 
swain has ever won a race without getting his traditional 
dunking in the river, and collections of twenty or thirty 
racing jerseys provide colorful evidence of the time- 
honored tradition of betting your shirt on each race 
with the man opposite in all the other boats. 

Three separate crews race each weekend during the 
season, the Varsity, the Junior Varsity, and the Plebe 
boats. Crew is the only sport which boasts the distinc- 
tion of awarding two different monograms to its letter- 
winners; Varsity men get the major "N" and the J.V.'s 
the minor "N." All three crews are enthusiastic sup- 
porters of the other two, for nothing can compare to the 

feeling around the boathouse when Navy "sweeps the 
river" — ask any crew man! 

Navy's coach, "Rusty" Callow to everyone, has long 
been recognized as the dean of rowing coaches. For more 
than thirty years the keen eye of the old master has been 
spotting potential championship combinations. It takes 
experienced judgment to pick out the right eight men 
from the scores of eager aspirants each year, for it is not 
the best eight oarsmen, but the best combination that 
drives the boats fastest. Rusty has been putting them 
together for years, and his friendliness, patience, and 
warm sense of humor have taught far more than the 
technique of wielding a twelve-foot oar. 

Keystone of Navy's young 1952 varsity crew was its 
youngster stroke-and-seven-man combination, Ed Stevens 
pacing the crew from his number eight seat, backed by

The reverberating voices of four tiny coxswains signal the approach of the varsity flotilla 

powerful Wayne Frye in seven. Workhorse in the "en- 
gine room' ' from the six seat back to number three was 
Navy's captain, John Pearson, a three-time letter winner. 
The little guy in the back seat with the cool wits and 
powerful lungs was another letter winner, first class- 
man Dave Manring. 

The Crew squad probably had more contests than any 
other sport at the Naval Academy, racing some thirty 
other crews during the season, and forty or more in an 
Olympic year like 1952. Much of the competition comes 
in big doses, like the ten to twelve boat races at the 
Intercollegiate Rowing Association Regatta, when Navy 
raced the finest crew from all over the country. To tune 
up for the big races, Navy took on Yale, Princeton, 
Wisconsin, and Boston in 1952, as well as Harvard and 
Pennsylvania in the Adams Cup Regatta.

Schultz and veteran N-star winners from last year, 
Organ, Southerland, Hoffner, and Carson formed a 
nucleus which was supplemented by the upper class 
hopefuls and last year's plebe team stars. Beginning early 
in March, the racquetmen quickly rounded into shape 
for their April second opener with Maine. Many were 
the hours spent on the varsity courts perfecting timing 
and coordination, serve and return, in hopes of bettering 
1951's 12-4 record.

Representing the Naval Academy in the sport in 
which it is most fitting the Navy should excel are the 
members of the sailing team. Sailing a fleet of thirty 
Tempest class dinghies in all extremes of weather during 
both the fall and spring seasons, the team has compiled 
an enviable record in intercollegiate competition. Led 
by Bill Lepthien and Captain Bill Gallinger, Navy again 
established itself as one of the powers in the Middle 
Atlantic Yacht Racing Association during the fall season 
by taking three first places in the five regattas in which it 
participated. During the spring, Professor Hap Hefler 
assumed the duties of Commander R. C. Turner, the re- 
tiring coach, and piloted the team, which continued to 
maintain its prominent position in intercollegiate com- 

Coach Hefler, Captain Bill Gallinger, and retiring Coach

Proudly boasting of the fact that they have never lost 
a match to Army in thirteen years of competition, Coach 
Williams prepared to lead his golfers into another season. 
There were grounds for the optimism which prevailed, 
for Captain John Inman was top man of five returning 
lettermen from last year's squad which held an 8 won, 
2 lost record. Gurney, Thomas, Hall, and Thompson 
were on hand to aid Inman in forming the backbone of 
the new squad. With furious practice the Navy squad 
rounded into shape for their Duke opener, which promised 
to be among their toughest contests of the campaign.

With only a fair indoor winter season behind them, 
track coach Tommy Thompson and his new assistant, 
Jim Gherdes from Penn State faced brilliant prospects in 
the spring outdoor campaign. 1951 graduation losses 
were light, and a number of tested performers returned 
for the new season. Outstanding among them was team 
captain Bob Allison, top-notch javelin hurler, who last 
year tossed his weapon 226 feet to rank third among the 
nation's collegiates. With him rested the team's best 
hopes for an Olympic representative. 

During the winter, Ira Kane's sprinting tied the in-

season. It was a well balanced, close-knit organization,

sneaked off with a co-championship before the surprised 
lacrosse world. 

It would be more difficult to imagine a better balanced 
outfit than the 1952 team. Defense men, attack men, 
and the two-platoon midfielders all merited plaudits 
equally. Even goalie duties were shared between three 
men, Jerry Sylvester, John Jones, and John Vosseler.

The team whipped Washington College and Dart-

8-7. They then piled up a football score, 21-0, over a

a climactic struggle. The game, tied 8-8 at the end of 
the regular playing time, was decided in the second

One of the surprises of the 1952 Navy campaigns was 
the baseball team. Coach Max Bishop rapidly whipped 
his charges into shape, and the new team responded with 
better and better performances as the season progressed. 

The team lost three of their first five games before 
hitting their stride and winning the next eight straight. 
They completed the rain-drenched season with twelve 
winSj five losses, and two ties, the best the Class of 1952 
saw during their four years at the Academy. Shining 
5-4 and 4-2 victories over Georgetown and Penn State 
were outstanding. The cocky Penn State unit sported a 
10-1 record before their unsuccessful invasion of Lawrence 
Field. Captain Bob Zastrow was the hero of the day 
when he unloaded a home run with the bases loaded and 
accounted for all of Navy's runs in the exciting contest. 

The Army game may well be classified as the year's 
best. The game was marked by its strong pitching and 
sound defensive play on both sides. Don Metz, the 
Navy hurler, allowed only five hits, LeCates of Army 
but four. Navy scored their two winning runs without 
the benefit of a hit. 

Fastballer Metz' five hitter against Army gave him a 
7-2 record for the season. Lefty Art Potter, who al- 
ternated with Metz to handle the greater part of the 
pitching duties, wound up with three wins and two 
losses. His finest performances were a four-hit, 6-2 win 
over Cornell, one of the Ivy League's toughest outfits, 
and another four-hit tie game against the Columbia 
Lions, Ivy League title contenders.

McCally, who may be Navy's all-time best catcher be-

two homers, including a 370-footer against Cornell at 
Ithaca. Around the infield, Lou Hamel at first, Bill 
Alter at second, Ed Dawson at short, and Mat Pasztal- 
aniec forced opposing batters to earn their base hits. 
Frank Chace, Rod Hegerty, and Jim Van Scoyoc made 
the inner defenses strong in depth. 

Walt Shaw in center field and Dick Bordone in left 
were polished defensive performers in the broad ex- 
panses of the outfield. Captain Zug Zastrow, not known 
for his fielding finesse, nevertheless managed to be at 
the right place at the right time when the chips were 
down. Zastrow and Bordone each contributed a spec- 
tacular game-saving catch to the victory over Army. 
Zastrow, the only first classman on the squad, wielded a 
mighty bat for the Navy cause. Clutch hitting non- 
pariels were his two home runs with the bases loaded. 
His second base-sweeping wallop wilted the Penn State 
nine into submission. Top hitters on the club were 
Alter, Pasztalaniec, and Zastrow.

The men from the grey walls by the Hudson again 
proved themselves to be Navy's toughest opponents 
during the Army Weekend this spring. In the closing 
sports competition for the Class of 1952, they eked out a 
3-2 victory in the five-game series. The Navy teams, 
battling to win at least the three games necessary to have 
the Enterprise Bell sound forth its victory peal for the 
first time in the spring since Admiral Hill brought the 
bell to the Naval Academy, provided Navy spectators 
with some of the most thrilling contests they had ever 
seen. The competition at West Point was less exciting: 
the Cadets defeated the Navy lacrosse team 15-4, while 
the tennis team made the score even by crushing Army 

The thrillers were played at Annapolis, with President 
Truman in the audience. First Navy won the baseball 
game 3-1. Army came back by winning the see-saw 
track meet, in which the issue was in doubt until the final 
mile relay. With each school having two wins, the 
series was determined on the quiet green golf course. 
Each team had taken three matches, and the final match 
was tied at the end of 18 holes. On the 20th hole, Carlson 
of Army finally holed out before Navy's Highfill for the 
match deciding, series deciding point. The Cadets had 
earned their triumph.

THE 1952 

The 1952 Crew was more than good: it was un- 
beatable. Forecasting the team's strength was the im- 
pressive opening victory over Yale by four and a half 
lengths. When the crew followed up with wins over 
Princeton, and then Wisconsin, the power of the Mid- 
west, the rowing world began casting impressed glances 
Annapolis-way. The Adams Cup Regatta was the 
clincher: for the first time since 1937, Navy whipped 
Harvard and placed first in the three-way race. The 
following week the team demonstrated themselves to be 
strong in speed as well as in endurance as they won the 
Eastern Spring Regatta. As was almost invariably true, 
Navy "swept the river," for the JV and plebe boats 
also topped their three opponents. Boston U. fell victim 
during a rainy June Week afternoon, proving that the 
Navy crew was, as Time had labeled them, "the best." 

The midshipmen graduating and embarking on cruise 
waited impatiently to hear the results of the IRA 
Regatta and Olympic trials in late June, and they were 
not to be disappointed. Navy -won the Regatta handily, 
to make them the nation's best. The following week 
they completed their flawless season by winning not only 
the eight-oar contest, but the four without coxswain 
and the singles competition at the Olympic try outs. 
The winning eight finished only one second off the 
Olympic record. The four man team, Welsh, Jackson, 
Davis, and McMillan, and John Kelly, the singles win- 
ner, rounded out the Navy squad that earned the privilege 
of representing the United States at Helsinki in July.

In a setting reminiscent of Viennese balls, 
with whirling skirts, gold buttons and high 
starched summer white, the class says its 
unofficial goodbye. The Farewell Ball is a 
resplendent yet somehow lugubrious re- 
galia. Here, the next to last scene of our 

four years' drama is acted out under the 
great arching, bunting draped roof and 
amid the stiff formalism of a military ball. 
We are conscious of it as a dance — and as 
a dance we recall in it all the hops of the 
past. It is all of them in one — it is their 
accumulated memory — the receiving line, 
the bandstand, little knots of people about 
the punchbowl, couples drifting outside 
into the warm spring night, the sacrificial 
discomfort of Russian collars. They all 
passed in review and fade with the last 
note of "Navy Blue and Gold." Now it was 
absolutely over.

Four years is a long time. In four years spent at 
the Naval Academy one absorbs a great deal. In 
addition to the obvious seeds of education planted 
in us, there are left also certain intangibles which 
defy description. The last lingering look at the reced- 
ing school seems to spell finis to those four years. 
The gray walls dwindle and soon drop below the 
brow of the hill and ahead the yellow ribbon of the 
highway stretches to the horizon. The four years is 
over; one broad gold stripe gilds our shoulder 
boards. In time perhaps the education will be for- 
gotten — yet the intangibles will remain. Those four 
years will be indelibly etched on our memories.

After high school Al enlisted in the Navy and came to the Naval Academy 
via NAPS, in Bainbridge, Maryland. Outstanding from the beginning, his 
leadership qualities were realized when he was elected class treasurer during 
his youngster year, and class secretary second class year. He was also one of 
those lucky few who could participate in athletics the year 'round and still 
have no trouble with academics. During his plebe year, he made first string 
in football, basketball, and track; then repeated in all three on the varsity. 
We all know that he will have the same kind of success in the Fleet that he 
had at Navy Tech.

Menominee, Michigan 

Bud was a Congressional Appointee from Menominee, Michigan. He com- 
pleted high school in 1948 at the age of seventeen, and wasted only two 
months before entering Navy. During his tour of duty at Navy, he was active 
in batt football, company cross-country, company touch football, and the 
Russian Club. Bud's favorite pastime was painting neckties, which he did 
very well. He hoped to fly with the Navy after graduation, providing of 
course, his OAO didn't persuade him to enter the Marine Corps. Bud's ready 
smile and friendly manner will stand him in good stead among his many 
friends and future acquaintances.

From his backyard Rae watched Uncle Sam's Robots parading behind the 
stone wall and decided he, too, wanted to wear a three-button roll blue suit. 
To pierce the maze of red tape and exams, Rae scurried off to Bullis to sharpen 
the point on his head. Finding plebe year a little different than it seemed from 
outside, and his pointed head now dulled from banging against the wall in 
despair, Rae had a hard time cutting his way through Skinny. Women? Yes! 
Now Rae has his blue suit with a halo on each sleeve and so heads for the 
briny deep and submarines, striving to follow in his father's footsteps and 
grow more halos on his sleeve.

Indiana, Pennsylvania 

Bill came to Navy straight from Indiana High. He enjoyed a fast game of 
volleyball, and held down a position on the company team each year. A 
week never went by that he didn't engage in a Smoke Hall pool game with 
his wives. Weight-lifting appealed to his nature also, thanks to the Golden 
Greek's influence. Bill was strictly a one-woman man leaving his OAO in 
Pennsylvania when he came to Navy. With his OAO wearing a miniature, 
it's a good bet he won't be living at a BOQ after graduation. We think Bill 
will be able to do well in any branch of the Navy he picks.

Kansas City, Missouri 

Les was born in St. Louis, Missouri, during the depression and has not as yet 
recovered from it. He later moved to Kansas City where he finished gram- 
mar school and graduated from Southeast High School. Mountain climbing, 
water skiing, and track were also among his favorite activities. He received 
his Appointment by a college certificate from the Fourth Congressional Dis- 
trict in Missouri, following a year at Junior College. His favorite subjects 
were American History and Mathematics. Second class summer found

Don came to Navy by way of an Honor School Appointment, and conse-

and with little difficulty managed to wear stars. He found plenty of time for 
leisure and admitted that soft music, and a good book were just right for re- 
laxing. Books weren't his only outside interest however, and with his easy- 
going gait and southern gentleman's manners, he found time to keep the 
Georgia girls happy. In Annapolis memories, D. A. will be remembered for 
his warm and sincere nature which insure him a successful career and happy

"Young Don" came to Crabtown from Lancaster, New York, after spending 
two years with the Marines. Always smiling, he quickly applied himself to 
the rigors of Navy life, and won himself a berth on the plebe crew. Don's 
athletic endeavors, however, didn't deter him from standing near the top of 
his class. The stars on his uniform were soon joined by stars in his eyes, when 
he found the right girl. Always in good humor, many study hours were inter- 
rupted by his blood-curdling laugh, which sent his classmates seeking for 
cover. Still a "gyrene" at heart "Beils" intended to don the globe and anchor.

Bill soon learned to call home any place where he hung his hat for more than 
a few hours since his father earned his living by being a Marine. After gracing 
the halls of various schools and institutions he decided that he should receive 
his higher education at Navy Tech. "Lethal" admits that he has learned 
many things here at Navy, the main one being to stay loose. Although his 
many interests kept him fairly busy he could usually find time to come up 
with a deal or to lavish a little attention on his favorite hobby, women. His 
will to succeed should make him a valuable addition to the Marine Corps.

With three years of travel in the Marine Corps behind him, Bill entered the 
"Factory" on detached duty with a Fleet Appointment via NAPS. Following 
his interest in drums, he joined the Drum and Bugle Corps. Forced to get off 
the Radiator Squad, he went out for soccer and lacrosse, but his favorite pas- 
time was to rack out with a good book. A hard worker, ready with a helping

From a hard childhood of riding the rods to school and helping sharecrop the

lina. His main gift to the Academy was the store of plebe knowledge that 
he added, some definitely not voluntary, such as, "Sir, I'm so dumb ..." He 
played second fiddle to the upper class in company cross-country and battalion 
track for two years and then took the lead himself. His many OAO's came 
thick and fast, too numerous to remember, but each one was the real thing.

After his fill of high school in California's Flickerville, Big Al took to the air 
literally, and when the Japs heard he completed the Air Gunnery Course at 
Jacksonville they quit. The "Gimp" received his nickname when he spent a 
year and a half of plebe and youngster years avoiding formations by a three- 
point hobbling on a pair of crutches and one unbroken leg. Second class year 
began by teaching Al that on the command "march" one steps off with the 
left foot. Al's capabilities as a private pilot made it ironic that he would 
choose subs, but success will always be within his grasp.

a little book larnin'. Whether building on his learning from Carolina or not, 
Bill managed to circulate in the upper third of the class, and still had plenty 
of time for his favorite bop artists : Illinois Jacquet and Ella Fitzgerald. To

was always busy with brigade activities, including topnotch work on the 
circulation department of the Trident magazine. Outside the dark walls 
of Bancroft Hall was where Jake's extracurricular activity really commenced 
however, in the form of spreading a little happiness to the female population 
of the area. All in all, Jake was quite a guy and a real friend, one which all of

Richard "Tarn" Brownrigg. It wasn't long before one knew Tarn's home 
town, for any discussion of fine beer or beautiful women was sure to bring 
from Tarn the opinion that St. Louis couldn't be touched. Tarn stepped from 
high school into the Naval Academy; immediately adjusting himself to the 
new, strict life. He placed Navigation high on the list of important subjects 
for midshipmen. Tarn didn't like to "run" plebes, he merely gave them 
fatherly advice in the form of a "hard time." On first sight of Tarn with his 
hat off, we thought him a great worrier from his not-too-thick hair; if he had 
troubles, however, his pleasant personality never gave him away.

Middletown, Connecticut saw Buck play football and baseball for its high 
school, and Buck maintained these interests at Navy participating in all 
sports. Buck didn't find the jump from high school to college hard; it was 
his room people visited for answers. It was always said that he could conquer 
the world if he could swim. To fill the requisite he spent many afternoons after 
classes at the Natatorium with Joe Klaks looking on. Besides studying sci- 
ences, Buck liked to study women; which came first is hard to say. A young 
lady we saw with Buck frequently said it was the sciences, but perhaps that 
is because she was his OAO.

Terror of the lacrosse field, that was Bob. His mastery of the old Indian game 
stemmed from three years experience at the New York Military Academy 
and three years a regular on the Navy aggregation. As an avid baseball and 
football fan, he could quote records with the best. Bob was an ardent fan of 
dixieland jazz and would listen to it for hours. Throughout his stay at Navy 
there was always one shining light, his OAO; she seemed to maintain a hold 
on his affections throughout. The chow was not always up to his standards, 
but Mrs. Burch's pies kept him alive.

realized that there would be no better way than to join the Navy. After join- 
ing the Navy, he was successful in spending two years in various Naval 
schools and seemed destined to become a radioman until he set his sights on 
the Naval Academy. He had very little trouble going through NAPS, and 
after passing his entrance examinations, was appointed to the Naval Acad- 
emy. Once at the Academy he found plenty of time to sleep except on week 
ends when he was too busy dragging. We will miss his pleasant disposition 
after graduation.

Tom's interest and continuous pursuit of the fairer sex is rivaled only by his

lieved in taking life easy, and believed the rack, his favorite habitat, was most 
conducive to study. He almost took a strain during the rigors of youngster 
Dago, and finished with the comment, "Tres difficile." His athletic en- 
deavors have been many and varied. He earned his letter in water polo, and 
has dabbled in batt gymnastics and bowling. He has served the Log faith- 
fully for 4 years as a joke swapper. His string of Crabs, as long as your arm, 
helped Tom avoid some of the disillusionment of plebe year.

Staggered by the academics at the University of Chicago, Rody tossed his 
fate to the winds and eventually a gust blew out of the Windy City and de- 
posited him at Annapolis. With ambitions, and knowledge of a dry land 
sailor, Mr. Q. tackled the nautical life and found it much to his liking. But, 
alas, he was not quite satisfied with the dull routine life here at Navy Tech, 
and early plebe year he began to pull some of his deals to break the monotony 
— deals that grew until none of us will deny that he became the dealer of 
USNA. We are sure that Mr. Q's success in the Navy will be as his surname 
to the MPO, unbelievable.

Bob came to Navy on a loan from the Marine Corps. Once a Marine, always 
a Marine and Bob was no exception. Before entering, he spent his prep school 
days at Loyola of Chicago and Severn. As any true native son would do, 
Bob claimed Chicago through thick and thin. Although not a member of the 
debating team, he was never hesitant to employ his sharp wit and sense of 
humor to prove a point. One thing that puzzled Bob was how his record of 
"Jealous Heart" was broken. Listening to it always made him think of the 
little gal back home. If you heard him complain, it was usually about aca- 
demics. More often, however, he was the one to cheer up the rest of the boys.

letic abilities, but it was brought to light that he had wings on his feet and 
was second only to the shark in the water when he participated in company 
cross-country and battalion water polo. Not one to allow the fairer sex to 
cause him worry, he stayed calm, played the field, and had a good time. But 
then, we're sure that somehow Phil will always be having a good time.

London made him long for the open bridge of a destroyer. We didn't see his 
name on the varsity lists because Bob took his athletics informally; however, 
he placed high for the cross-country team one day, and he could put the fear 
of those flying elbows into some center on the basketball court the next. 
Those stars he wore were due in part to a year spent at the University of the

that swimming kept him loose when it came to passing those Bull exams. 
His favorite exrpession was, "Did you see the way she was giving me the

before he went to the Naval Academy Prep School at Bainbridge, Md. Walt 
found NAPS lots of fun, the academics not too difficult, and he passed the 
examination and was given a Fleet Appointment. Walt came to Navy Tech 
with high hopes — not unfounded either — and immediately joined the "Radi- 
ator Club" ; he was an honorary member upon graduation. His chief pastimes 
were "Racktime," dragging, and how to graduate.

Sioux City, Iowa 

A staunch westerner, Dandy took pride in the fact that he hailed from the 
tall corn country — that's pronounced Ioway, son. Graduating from high 
school in '47, he immediately investigated the prospects of USNA and after 
a year's matriculation at Sioux City's Morningside College, he was appointed 
to the Class of '52. Inclined never to pass up a good deal, he consistently ma- 
neuvered himself into many astounding situations and soon became legend. 
He claimed that his main hobby was resting up for the future, but many will 
tell you that he sported a mean bridge game. Always eager to conquer new 
fields, Dandy looked to Naval Aviation on graduation.

Dap first saw the light of day in Chicago's West Side whereupon Al Capone 
said, "I give up," and left town. Fifteen years later, when Chicago could take 
it no longer, Dap moved to Missouri. His big interests here at Navy were 
Log activities during plebe year, company soccer, sailing, and being fished 
from the bottom of the Natatorium. Bob has always devoted many an hour 
to those yearning westward glances directed toward Kansas City and his 
OAO. Upon graduation, Bob intends to take off into the "wild blue yonder" 
where we are certain that his winning personality and jovial spirit will win 
him many new friends and achievements.

After laboring as an NROTC at Oklahoma U. for a year and going on sum- 
mer cruise with '51 youngsters, Denny left to join us at the Factory. Spring 
and fall were filled for him by football where he served as a heavy duty guard. 
Denny was one of the lucky ones whom academics didn't bother, and so he 
glided smoothly along, being only occasionally bounced around by such things 
as the Executive Department and swimming tests. Like the rest of us, Denny 
was always true to his OAO — well, nearly always. His happy outlook on 
life and will to win will surely keep him on top wherever he goes.

Centralia, Illinois 

Born a Hoosier, Dick moved to Illinois at the age of 12. His first contact 
with the blue and gold was in the NROTC unit at the University of Illinois. 
Coming direct to the Trade School from a Pacific cruise, Dick soon fell into 
the routine of Bancroft. At the Academy his athletics were confined to the 
usual company sports of volleyball and cross-country. He managed to serve 
well for a year as circulation manager of the Trident magazine. Despite a 
few early "brickings," Dick held his own with the other fellows when it came 
to dragging. Provided he can see his way past the eye chart, Dick will some- 
day sport his wings of gold and take his place upstairs as Dilbert's wingman.

Originally coming from the midwest, Johnny took Washington and the At-

tackle for the 150-lb. football team in the fall, squash in the winter, and vie-

but Gene, like many of us, often wished that Navy were far-removed from 
the Mason-Dixon Line so that winter sports would be in order, as around 
his Bay State home. Uncle Samuel took Gene from that happy Mass. home

taking the sack as soccer team manager, he still had time to drag those big 
week ends. When he was not dragging, Fred could either be found in the 
local gun store, checking on any additions to his gun collection, or out in the 
fields pursuing his favorite pastime, hunting. With his interest in Foreign

variety of the opposite sex when the urge hit him. For a pastime, sailing 
ranked first, but he was also a fiend for exercise, and most any afternoon he 
could be found at the gym working out. Hank's choice of Service was a

of nine children. He was a Sigma Nu and among his pet peeves were guest 
speakers, self-centered young ladies, and debutantes. As for the fairer sex, he 
was never CIS'd. Math and Science held his academic interests while he 
nursed blisters from walking across the bottom of the Natatorium. Never 
without a smile, Fuzzy enjoys life and its trials and tribulations. He aspired 
for wings of gold upon graduation and we are sure that there'll be an opening 
for him wherever he may go.

The Fleet sent Walt to us after he spent time touring the world. Perched on 
dry land at Navy Tech, he never lost his love for water and almost every 
afternoon found him in the pool swimming or drinking his fill of the green 
stuff in a game of water polo. Larry was plagued with an inaccurate slip 
stick, but always managed to come up with enough answers to save his 
pennies during exams. He'll probably wind up 'wiggling the wobble pump 
in the Air Corps, but we are certain he will have his camera along. Dolphins 
or wings, one stripe or bands of braid, he will always be our man.

Bill came to Navy a short three weeks after graduating from high school. He 
was a bucket plebe year, but improved consistently for the next three years. 
Bill did well in Bull courses, but Math and Skinny provided a few pitfalls 
during his stay at the Academy. While a mainstay on the Radiator Squad, 
he occasionally lent a proficient hand to the first company volleyball and soft- 
ball squads. He had a host of female admirers, but claimed no special OAO. 
Bill was a thirty-year man and planned to go to Pensacola after graduation. 
His quick wit and sparkling conversation will win him many friends during 
his Naval career.

Our mighty carriers sent Chuck to the "old grey walls" and his eventual 
return was predetermined on the day he left them. Never was he fond of 
regulations, never did he have to polish up a set of stars, never did he have 
to fan the flame to give the warmth of heart we knew in him so well. His 
pay account never reached notorious heights but even in those "monthly 
scandal records" his friends found a subtle joy in reading. Now back to the 
Fleet with much ado, to a life that is cherished by all too few; but whether in 
subs or carriers, in cans or the "Moe," he'll love forever his sack, his steam- 
bath, and his cup of joe.

Jim's smiling face and dry humor first became familiar to many on the basket- 
ball court at Bainbridge Navy Prep, for his two years as captain of the basket- 
ball team at St. Clair kept him going at NAPS as well as at Navy after he 
made good his Fleet Appointment. In addition to being famous for collecting 
one hour of E. D. credit during second class year, Jim was also noted for the 
OAO from Rolla, Missouri. We always suspected that she was the reason 
for his favorite expression, "Where's the mail?" Always a cool, collected 
guy, he never worried about such things as academics, and that same unper- 
turbed manner will carry him far in the Navy line.

chine shop where he spent many hours amid a maze of tubes, 'wires, and con- 
densers. Tinkering and music were his main hobbies; he was an ardent fan

his tooting to the Drum and Bugle Corps. However, graduation found him

That he had no trouble making the change was evidenced by those lovely

someday we will probably find him leading a platoon through the streets of

ole Usnay via the Fleet. "Don't think I'll go out for football next year" was 
his pet statement, but we could count on his being out banging heads with 
the big blue. Though the biggest and easiest going tackle on the squad, he 
managed to win his letter and cop a few heavyweight titles in the ring. Along 
with his ETM training in the Fleet, his experience in the Juice gang gave him 
that needed edge over the Juice Department. His happier moments were 
either with a certain chick up Pennsylvania "way or sitting at his desk counting 
his pipes.

Miami, Florida 

He claimed that his speed on the track was traceable to experience gained by 
running from girls, but this we seriously doubted. J. V. came to the Academy 
via the Marines. His efforts at the Academy were hampered by demerit 
difficulties, but Val forever maintained innocence of such charges. While 
at Navy, Val formulated four rules for success for future classes: Don't ex- 
pectorate to windward, Force equals mass times acceleration, Three, five, and 
eight are stack men, and Fluids do not flow up hill. The exclusiveness of the 
flying Marines was made to order for J. V., for few can hope to dwarf this 
six-four lad's statue or achievements. 

J4arry, Qeorge Solbach, jr. 

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

A native of the Smoky City, Harry wiled away many hours in bull sessions 
vainly maintaining that it was possible to see the sun at noontime in Pitts- 
burgh, on a clear day. Although active in both company and battalion sports, 
Harry gave his undivided attention to baseball and, on almost any afternoon 
in the spring, could be seen rolling over to Lawrence Field to practice. No 
slouch at academics, "The Sol" was up there with the best of them. Cheerful, 
friendly, and conscientious, he was always an inspiration to his classmates 
and will never be lacking in friends or accomplishments.

Lincoln, Nebraska 

Dewey became a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity during his 
one year of study at Nebraska University, and ever since, he has been trying 
to make his foghorn voice conform to the tunes of some of their ditties. Al- 
though he played football at Nebraska, a bad knee kept him from joining 
Navy's pigskin force. However, during the Brigade Boxing Championships, 
he usually won his share of the honors. What was left of Dewey's free time 
was spent writing to that OAO way back in Lincoln. He plans to join the 
Marine Corps where his fighting spirit and determination to succeed should 
help him carry on in the finest leatherneck traditions. 

Peter cAmy, Stark, jfr. 

Hibbing, Minnesota 

With two years in as a Navy metalsmith, Pete entered on a Fleet Appointment 
via NAPS. His size ruled out contact sports, so he took up his "shooting 
iron" and proceeded to make the rifle squad his main sports conquest. Pete 
will best be remembered for his work on the Hop Committees, where his 
classmates elected him chairman of the Youngster Hop and Chief Wheel of 
our all important Ring Dance. "Little One" also held the honorable position 
of chairman of the design section of our ring. Dago, Skinny conversion units, 
and a receding hairline were constant sources of worry. His diligence and 
organizational ability should carry him far in the Fleet.

Applington, Iowa 

If anyone should ever question the amount of "snow" in Maryland, they 
should ask "Little Stock." Aside from the regular snowfall during the term, 
a regular blizzard occurred during the exams. Iowa gave Stock a high school 
education and a self-confidence in his voice, which contributed to the Acad- 
emy choir. If you haven't heard "Little Stock" in Chapel, ask his OAO or 
some of his Red Mike buddies about his Sinatra abilities. Although he man- 
aged lacrosse, the PT Department found in him one of the best drowning 
students in the history of the "Trade School." For this reason, wings have 
a very bright spot in his future.

"Tom, how do you do the last prob?" — a cry that was familiar to him during 
study hall, and this man was always ready to lend a helping hand. One of 
the few men just out of high school who found no strain to academics, he was 
still one of the fewer men who stood at the top of the class. This impartial 
but particular Delaware lad solved the navigational hazards of Crabtown's 
streets early in his midshipman life. Tom could often be found in one of the 
telephone booths calling prospective drags. When not dragging, he was 
active in sports, managing the track and crew teams, and was on the plebe 
soccer and plebe rifle teams. Tom is headed for sub-school, and a successful

Coronado, California 

One of California's biggest backers, Tommy came to the Academy from 
Coronado, via Landon's of Washington, DC, with the idea of becoming 
an aviator — but with his eyes, he will probably spend the rest of his frustrated 
life in the Supply Corps trying to account for those two missing flour barrels. 
Tommy didn't have trouble with academics, but his stars were held far out 
of reach by his three loves: soccer, sack, and his OAO. A week end never 
passed that he couldn't be found reading, writing letters, listening to classi- 
cal music or just sleeping. We hope Tom will be happy in the SC, because 
we know they will be happy with him.

New Rockford, North Dakota 

Hailing from that wild western state of North Dakota, Erv seemed as much 
at home on the rolling seas as on his natural habitat, the rolling prairies. 
Starring in Pre-Law and Debate at the University of North Dakota, Erv 
used his talents as an Army ROTC sea-lawyer with the Sioux. Here at the 
Tech, Ed added many to his long list of friends. He tried sailing but decided 
that the Severn was too cold without a warm coed in a dinghy. Ed's many 
service interests are being diverted toward the Navy's Corps for the blind. 
And on his way goes another middy whose passing Crabtown can morn.

Evanston, Illinois 

Ray came to Crabtown from Evanston, Illinois, the headquarters of the 
WCTU. Tuz is admired by all his friends for his mastery of all problems; 
tall, mysterious, and very friendly, Ray had no trouble in social circles or with 
academics — Russian became second nature to him. Ray started out college 
life by attending the College of Pharmacy at the home of the "Fighting 
Illini," and later he attended Loyola University of Chicago. During his 
cruise here on the Severn, he worked with the Log, and was active in the 
Russian Club. No change has been too great for Ray, from the fresh water 
of Lake Michigan to the salt water of a summer cruise or from pills to "M" 
type boilers, it has always been the same.

Well, the train came to town and Gale got down mumbling "So I kick 
around here for awhile, coasting on my eighteen-month ROTC training at 
the old U. of Oregon and then I'll have it made." And Gallupin' Gale from 
the rolling hills did coast. There was always time in the book-banging for 
a cribbage or bridge game or to help one of the troops with a prob. His friends 
always enjoyed his company in athletic competition, for no matter what the 
sport — wrestling, basketball, soccer, touch football, or softball — his actions 
were graced with a level-headedness mastered in high school. And rather 
than break a precedent, he'll star in the Fleet or his choice of service.

Gene's remarkable lack of hair plus his tedious roles with the Juice gang and 
WRNV earned him the title of "Uncle Gene, Master Electron." His stellar 
results with the academics and cheerful readiness to help made him a savoir 
par excellence.. Although Uncle Gene was seemingly forever busy, he found 
time to sandwich in a good deal of dragging — or was it the other way around 
Gene? His best remembered quote, "Now on the last prob ..." Uncle Gene 
intended to return to the sea only a few pay grades higher this time, and in 
this electronic world, Gene is assured of success in his chosen field.

Take a smiling face, add a dish of sparkling wit, a ready story, shake well 
and flavor with a Saturday afternoon drag, and you have Bob. This blond- 
haired ray of sunshine brought to the Naval Academy lots of chuckles and 
smiles. Dividing his time between his bed and a charming OAO, Bob set 
two records : logging the most sack time and never missing a hop. Taking 
academics and the Executive Department completely in stride, Bob enjoyed 
every minute at Navy. Conscientiousness and loyalty, coupled with a win- 
ning sense of humor, made him popular with all his classmates. 

Stanford J\ichard id/ilde 

American Fork, Utah 

From the wigwams of the Utah Redskins came Cornell to graduate from 
canoes to Yippee boats. He was soon recruited for the submariner squad, 
where, after three full seasons of never being cut from the team, he became 
an experienced veteran of the up, out, and together boys. After tours of duty 
plebe year on steeplechase and cross-country teams, he moved on to the fields 
of yawl sailing, volleyball, and the third company sleeping team. His bub- 
bling personality stood him in good stead during the Dark Ages, for he could 
always bring forth a chuckle when life got a little dreary. Cornell's fondest 
memories of the Naval Academy are the days spent at home on leave.

After filching a sheepskin from Waterloo High School, Joe left for Rio

matter to enter Annapolis on a college certificate. Basketball held the spot- 
light in sports and he played it before and after entering the Academy. Joe 
could shoot the bull quite capably, but the EH&G Department somehow 
managed to always have plenty of re-exams on hand, especially earmarked 
for him. Joe's ideal duty would be Camid, or rather Virginia Beach. This 
able bodied fish, with all the attributes necessary for them, has a place re- 
served on his breast pocket for those dolphins.

Mike began his military career some seven years ago when he left Tulane 
University to join the Marine Corps. A complete control of academics left 
Mike time to pursue many interests, but we will remember him as an avid 
golfer. A stalwart on the Navy Chess team, Mike could checkmate the best 
of them, and as a member of the traveling squad, he spent some enjoyable 
week ends afield defending the Blue and Gold. The many friends he made

capacity and foundation for leadership will have produced a fine officer.

Besides getting his yearly "N" in track, the base-

Many a feminine heart beat faster when he extended

precedence. He managed to pass the entrance exams only to have small stars 
beside his weekly Bull grades. He did divide his attention, however, between

St. Cloud, Minnesota 

A two year introduction to Navy life in the Fleet prepped Bill for the trials 
and terrors of USNA. Soon the walls of Bancroft reverberated with his 
warning cries of "Guess what's for chow?" Even a bout with Skinny in the 
middle of youngster year failed to shake Bill's easygoing wit. Leaving cross- 
country to the Greek Marathoners, Bill directed his attention to the Academy 
yawls, with an eye on an eventual command. His beloved sack took back 
seat during Saturday sessions of "running right . . . (through) Reads." If 
furnished flight training for his seeing eye dog, Bill will enter the Naval air 
arm; otherwise the Supply Corps will be benefited by his presence.

Hugh came to Navy Tech from Charlottesville, Va., via the University of 
Rochester Campus. He seemed to have a yen for bright lights for no sooner 
was the stencil ink on his new white works dry than Hugh could be found 
backstage in Mahan Hall, klieg light in one hand, and a new fuse in the 
other. Still not having enough to fill his spare time, Hugh turned to WRNV, 
and was soon spinning platters and twisting knobs with the best of them. 
When he found time for academics is hard to say, but he always managed to 
have a set of stars glittering from his lapels. The word Navy meant sub- 
marines for Hugh, and his success at the Academy assured him of dolphins.

The Gopher came down from Minnesota with 
three planks in his platform. The first was the 
Naval Air Corps, the second was the undisputed 
(in his mind) football power of the "Golden Goph- 
ers," and last, but far from least, his OAO. When 
not trading jabs with the Academic Section, Dick 
can be found out on the links, nursing the pill to- 
ward the 18th hole, or, if it be winter, safely 
tucked under a generous amount of covering catch- 
ing "40," "50" or "60." Also famous for a very 
deceiving radio, he proved the right of the indi- 
vidual by successfully avoiding any frap for it. The 
result of four years is that Navy Air gets a grand 
little guy.

Here was a lad, straight from the golden state, that has a smile and person- 
ality that would make any Chamber of Commerce very happy; to say the 
least, the fairer sex too. He was an indispensable player on Navy's tennis 
team. Probably his time spent hunting deer and camping in the Sierras had 
much to do with Don's athletic prowess. Although blessed with brawn, 
there was proof that Don has his share of brain cells. While not busy studying 
for top honors, he devoted much of his spare time to the violin. We can only 
hope that his future will be as bright as his past.

Born in Crabtown but loath to admit it, Bix was quick to switch the subject

contacts were many and varied. Late in youngster year, however, we noticed 
his conversations dealing less with sea stories and more with his OAO. A 
firm believer in the no strain theory, he found time between sack sessions and 
dragging for varied athletic activity excelling in company cross-country and 
holding his own with all who cared to meet him on the handball court. His 
sincere interest in the Navy, coupled with an ability to make and keep friends, 
will stand him in good stead throughout his career.

seemed to be his foremost; he had a collection of colored photographs which 
gave him pride in showing to his Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, home folks. 
"Gay" had an early start in Naval Academy athletics by trying the swimming 
pool for size in plebe year. However, after that he settled down to make one 
of the finest Radiator Squad men the Academy has ever turned out. His 
greatest jinx in dating was the Memorial Hall hops; something would 
always prevent his attending. We are all sure his success is assured by his

locker door with pictures of the fair and innocent of fabulous Colorado 
Springs. The OAO, however, always stood number one in Don Borden's 
little black book. Since he lived from one leave to the next, our hero paid 
little heed to the multitude of academics which filled the void in between 
but he managed to terrorize the Math Department by scoring several near 
misses on their unattainable 4.0 exam grade. He will have many friends in

We remember John as the guy who would never

him up, and his unique boxing style usually ended 
him up on the deck, but he always bounced back 
with a smile and a joke ready for another round. 
An avid golf fan, he spent plenty of hours making

West Point made him adept at avoiding the per-

he will be a welcome addition to the Fleet.

A loyal Confederate flag waver from Tennessee, Red's experience at Castle

army tendencies, but plebe year soon cured him and by graduation he was 
100% sailor. After overcoming such insurmountable barriers as the obstacle 
course and the Bull Department, nothing stopped him. Red worked for 
the Trident until he found out loafing was easier, and thereafter spent his

When confronted with plenty of chow and an inter-

Academics never worried Ronnie nearly so much as the problem of who to

sports, he made a place for himself on the company football and soccer teams 
and was a mainstay on the batt track team. Those who knew him will 
remember him for his ready sense of humor and his willingness to help a

Dick generally claimed Albany, New York, as his home town since his coun-

Marine Corps, including Prep School at Bainbridge, seasoned him for the 
Spartan existence at Navy. His big stumbling block was academics, but 
even that was overcome. Leaving serious athletics to the athletes, Dick was 
always available for intramural sports. He also managed to find time for

had an opportunity to go to West Point but chose 
Navy instead. It could have been the nearness, 
but he strenuously denied that living in Washing- 
ton, D.C, had any bearing on his choice; he did 
concede that he had several illusions about plebe

end, he was shocked to learn plebes were denied 
the privilege. Larry entered Navy Tech with only 
a high school diploma, and although academics 
always presented a problem, it was a minor one

were his tales of the beautiful women and big fish to be found in the great 
Northwest, and he always produced snapshots to prove his point. Academics 
were natural; he always managed to be near the top with no strain. Whit 
could be found working out almost every afternoon, but he still proudly flew 
the Radiator Squad ensign from his B-robe. A year of Drum and Bugle 
Corps proved too much for our hero, so he settled down to strumming the 
mandolin for his remaining three years at Navy Tech. With a score of 4.0 
in personality, brains, and smile, Whit will be a welcome visitor in any port.

Moylan, Pennsylvania 

After a year of prepping at Severn School, John 
entered the Academy by way of a Fleet Reserve 
Appointment. Though born and presently resid- 
ing near Philadelphia, he vociferously defended 
California, where as a Navy junior, he spent sev- 
eral years. Except for a skirmish with Dago, John 
had little trouble trekking through the academic 
jungle. He became an advocate of that old Indian 
game, lacrosse, and each spring found him out 
on the practice fields. John was one of those who 
aspired to a life in the Navy line rather than in some 
specialized branch of the Service. But most as- 
suredly, he will be a valuable asset and a success in 
any outfit. 

Wendell ZJhomaJ Jvazlett 

Kane, Pennsylvania 

Wendy may have been a small physical addition to the Naval Academy, but 
his participation in company and battalion sports gave him a very notable 
record. Wendy still maintains his pride of being an ex-white hat and used 
his experience and knowledge to the best advantage. The plebes will always 
remember him for his professional questions, whether he was asking or an- 
swering them. Although Wendy possessed the savoir faire of the best, he 
restricted his ability to his OAO and we do mean one-and-only. His engag- 
ing personality and ingenuity will be a great asset in making this popular 
friend-of-all a very fine officer.

George had the distinction of spending a year at 
Fordham getting old enough to enter the Academy. 
He probably bestowed more nicknames on his hap- 
less classmates and received more in return during 
his four years than any one else ever to go through 
the Academy. Academics were no problem for him; 
Skinny probably contributed most to his shining 
stars. Afternoons, when he was not lending his 
athletic talents to the glory of his company, were 
generally spent mediating between his wives in 
controversies over the relative merits of Stan 
Kenton and hill-billy music. But when it came 
to listening to their respective choices, George 
figured it was time to leave.

Although he claimed D.C. as his home, Carl admitted that much of his lanky 
6-foot 2 frame was sprouted in Texas. Yet he forsook the cattle and women 
to cast his lot here with the rest of the "Sea Sniffers." Behind his quiet easy- 
going manner, "Bilger" managed to hide a brilliant mind, with a capacity 
for learning that kept him constantly at the top of the class, but he still grins 
when reminded of that 2.8 P-work in Math youngster year. Not to be out- 
done on the social end, he was generally silent on discussions of the fair sex, 
yet seldom failed to produce an attractive date. Certainly a credit to his class, 
he will be long and warmly remembered by his classmates.

""Hey Lee! Done your Dago sentences yet?" With these familiar words ring- 
ing in his ears, young Lee would turn again to helping classmates less gifted 
in El Espanol to escape the ever-grapsing hands of the Academic Board. Lee 
had little trouble in eluding the aforementioned paws himself, as evidenced 
by the points of light abaft his collar anchors. Lee is the product of extensive 
world travel, Point Loma's golden sunshine — which he never failed to com- 
pare to Maryland's — and prepping at the Boyden School. He was active in 
the Stage Gang, Reef Points and also a member of the dinghy and gym teams. 
Lee had his sights set for Naval aviation, and those of us who know him are 
sure that he will succeed.

Don left his home town of Jamaica, Long Island, one day in '47 and gave 
the Adelphi College a try, where he picked up two letters in track and cross- 
country. However, he soon decided the carefree life of a college boy was not

Nevertheless, he managed to play the field, eluding the grasp of any one girl.

Wayne's greatest complaint was that there were 
only twenty-four hours in a day. Because he played 
plebe baseball, was a member of the Foreign Lan- 
guage and Chess Clubs, and had the sometimes 
uneviable jobs of biographies and sports editors on 
the Lucky Bag, we can understand why. Despite 
his extra-academic interests he also found time to 
win his stars. Wayne enjoyed living, and tried to 
help others get as much pleasure out of life as he 
did. He liked to meet people and make friends, a 
trait combined with an earnest desire to serve the 
Navy well, which will help him greatly as he em- 
barks on his Service career.

Tom came to the banks of the Severn from a residential suburb of che Smoky 
City. Tom played academics rather loosely the first two years, but in spite 
of it, always came through in the semi-annual sweepstakes, sometimes in 
better shape than his supposedly savvy classmates. His major athletic inter- 
est was wrestling, which he pursued off and on during his stay at the Acad- 
emy. During youngster year, he was seen at many hops, but slacked off con- 
siderably second class year, partly in deference to the books. Aiming for a 
line officer's commission, Tom's friendly smile and ready laugh will stand 
him in good stead in the wardrooms of the Fleet.

"Dragging." However, with typical alertness and

and finished strong indeed. Like all of us, Fred had 
his moments of disgust and despair with the system, 
but nothing could suppress his pleasant humor for

daily workouts. He also went for swimming in a big way — being a staunch

Perhaps no one in history was as disappointed as our San Diego's Boyden 
School alumnus on discovering there were no cars, blue water, or surf at 
Annapolis. However, he soon found a home in the Navy at North Severn 
parachute loft and with the varsity crew. Swinging from academic trees 
helped make life dangerous for our man with the million dollar smile until 
second class year when he escaped from the Dago Department's clutches, 
and began jumping numbers like an adding machine. Those remaining at 
dear old Bancroft Hall will miss his ready grin, but they may be sure it will 
be wider than ever when the "Mambo Kid" heads for his natural element 
with Naval aviation.

St. Paul, Minnesota 

The "Ole Fox" is indeed a Navy man, one of those rare persons who came 
to Annapolis knowing more about the Navy than most people do when they 
leave here. Fox, who hails from Minnesota, came in with an enviable record 
of Service as a signalman with the Pacific Mine Force. He was a gone bridge 
man always ready to sing the praises of the "skivvy wavers," and a real 
leader with natural ability and a broad knowledge of the Navy that will 
boost him high in his career. Except when being the best Academy Yawl 
Skipper in ages, he took life easy, quietly getting around all obstacles and 
knowing how to reconcile himself to the system. 

In the Marine Air Corps Ground and Radio School, 
Rog picked up an insatiable love of flying and the 
knack of producing mirror-like grease shoes. His 
main non-athletic activities are the Reception Com- 
mittee, Radio Club, and the Model Airplane Club. 
He helped to vanquish Navy's foes as a side horse 
man on the gym team, and when not working out 
in MacDonough Hall, he was dazzling his ship- 
mates as a pitcher on the company softball team. 
During his four year stay, he remained true to a 
certain beautiful and brilliant young lady back 
home, who will someday probably design the 
planes he will be flying as a Marine pilot.

J. P. came to Navy from Elida, Ohio, with a name, though his parents never

young ensign calling a muster of the new candidates was stunned to find the 
name "John Paul Jones" among them. During plebe year, with the guidance 
of an understanding first class, he came to know a great deal about his name- 
sake. Ever ready to fix his wives up with blind drags, it wasn't his fault if 
they were occasionally "bricks." Jack always had a ready sense of humor, 
was versatile, and we all wish him the best of luck in the future; he won't 
let us down.

ber of the company's brigade championship cross- 
country team. He didn't do a lot of dragging, until 
he met his OAO at the youngster Army game, but

john Ldward O Connor 

New Haven, Connecticut 

A dash of the Irish, a pinch of New Haven, a teaspoonful of NAPS, and one 
large dose of personality — mix well — let it brew slowly — and the result is 
"Der Oke." John gave his early days following high school graduation to 
the Fleet. After coming to USNA, he showed increasing interest in New 
London and its fleet of subs. When he was not over at the fencing loft or 
buried under academics, one could always get him to talk about law or life 
in general. Always a hard worker, John will be a credit to the military life. 
Be it under, on, or over the water, the Service that acquires his abilities will 
be lucky.

"Ole" generally avoided athletics until he came to

Since then he became a steady, cheerful addition to '52. He spent a great

John came to Navy after three years at Vanderbilt which stood him in very 
good stead for the Academy. He had the honor of standing one in Math 
during plebe year and at the top in his other classes. A hard worker, he was 
active with the Lucky Bag and did a fine job as Log representative. He 
always had a ready smile, which was not even outshone by the stars he wore 
from plebe year on. With his suave way, he was a favorite with the gals. 
In boxing, he earned the nickname of "mallet" because of his unique method 
of bludgeoning his victims. With his keen intelligence and quick wit, he 
will be an outstanding success in any branch of the Service.

Doug, an eager product of Baltimore's Polytechnic Institute, handled aca-

There were never circumstances sufficiently frustrating to get him clutched, 
and he lived with a lightheartedness that was invariably contagious. Young 
ladies were never a problem for him, and he played the field like a master. 
Doug's first choice was the Navy Air Corps where his bright wit will surely

Kenneth Richard Price is the pride and joy of Gar-

for the title of "gravel agitator, first class." Grasp- 
ing his certificate of Appointment to NAPS, he 
informed the proprietors of the local taverns of 
Havre de Grace of his future importance as Mid'n. 
The Marines will be endowed with the sparkling 
personality of Ken after graduation. Sacrificing a 
few minutes of valuable time from his startling

"Pru" settled right in, but along with the rest of us never seemed to fathom

Colin Donald Roach, alias Pounce, hails from the metropolitan area of East

were divided between cross-country and predictions for the current football 
season. Winter found him in vain pursuit of steeples and endeavoring to hit 
an elusive bull's-eye at the pistol range. The real salt in his company, he 
made several voyages across the equator in his travels while in the Marine 
Corps, and upon graduation, he was destined for another life in the Gyrenes. 
He managed to receive a volume of mail from his OAO in Pennsylvania,

Charted Ldward cAndrewA 

Baltimore, Maryland 

Charlie fulfilled one of his greatest ambitions when he entered the Academy. 
Coming from a year at the University of Maryland, where he won fame on 
their track team, Charlie was soon to become one of Navy's finest performers 
on the cinders, and was elected captain second class year after turning in many 
outstanding performances as a youngster. Off the athletic field, with his 
looks and personality, he was a natural when it came time to drag. Academics 
came easy to Charlie after his fine high school and college backgrounds. You 
may be sure that Charlie will go far in any branch of the Service he chooses 
after graduation. 

tart Wright Salley,, $r. 

Grenada, Mississippi 

After spending a year at Auburn in the Naval ROTC program, Earl arrived 
at the Naval Academy. His quick intelligence gave the ease with academics 
that enabled him to do a great deal of extracurricular reading. Playing the 
violin gave him a fine sense of musical appreciation, which he often expressed 
by bursting into song while passing through the corridors of Bancroft. His 
ability to achieve complete mental and physical relaxation was best demon- 
strated by his dropping off into light naps at will. His skill with members of 
the opposite sex was attested by the black address book which he fondly safe- 
guarded in his strong box. 

Peter 3 r and J (Barry, 

Marblehead, Massachusetts 

Claiming Marblehead, Masssachusetts, the birthplace of the American Navy, 
as his home, and with three years in the Fleet, Pete came to us well endowed 
along Navy lines. Always leaning a little more to the practical side of Navy 
academic life rather than the technical, Pete's grades were earned through hard 
work and a gargantuan determination. On the practical side, however, Pete 
possessed character, personality, common sense, and driving perserverance 
requisite in a good leader. Most of Pete's free time was spent playing 150- 
lb. football and golf. The Service will find in him the same inexhaustible 
humor and meticulosity which endeared him to us.

J\obert Paul (Hartley, 

Worcester, Massachusetts 

Worcester's pride and joy, after a four-year cruise with the Fleet, came to 
Navy via NAPS. A two-year tour in V-12 plus a year on a destroyer ade- 
quately prepared Bobo for the rigors of plebe year. Undaunted by plebe Steam, 
Bob found time for batt football, many bull sessions, and lots of Bartley 
humor and slapstick. Wine, women, and Mennen's — with emphasis on the 
first and the last — have been established as his forte; however, even a con- 
firmed bachelor like Bo thinks about the fairer sex occasionally. After grad- 
uation, Bob hopes to don the Air Force Blue. 

Vlteodore Jrenru djeauregard 

Stamford, Connecticut 

With a year at New Haven Teacher's College, Ted headed for Navy and, 
indirectly, a pair of wings. Although his nickname, "Beau," had people look- 
ing for stars and bars on his cruise box, French rather than "you-all" was the 
language for this man. At Navy he hit French, the French Club, and the 
ladies in a way that would make a Parisian stand up and cheer. Many cute 
dates graced his week ends and evenings in Dahlgren, but he always remained 
partial to one. Any radio commentator would up his percentage of correct 
predictions by forecasting a successful career for Ted in any branch of the 
Navy lucky enough to have him. 

JranciA William J$ernier 

Northampton, Massachusetts 

Having entered the Academy by way of NAPS after spending considerable 
time in a China station, the system was nothing new to Ben. Much of his 
time was spent working on the varsity sub squad or waging a battle with 
academics. A firm admirer of the opposite sex, he believed that Wine, wo- 
men, and song made for a perfect liberty, and liberty call found him ready and 
waiting. His sincere and taciturn nature have earned him the respect and 
friendship of his classmates. Loyalty to the Service and an earnest desire to 
become a good Naval officer will ensure his success in the Service.

New Orleans, Louisiana 

Having lived more than half of his life in Paris and finding the slow and easy 
life there to his liking, one could not honestly say that Ollie was in complete 
accord with the system. However, he tolerated it admirably well, and his 
good nature and broad grin proved contagious to those suffering with him 
during the hard times. One of the most generous and best liked fellows, his 
genial personality will be an asset to him in whichever field he serves. His 
present goal is to wear Navy wings and to become even more of a cosmo- 
politan through world-wide travel. 

Jban Charted Jolide 

Minot, North Dakota 

Our smiling Irishman from North Dakota has his sights on Naval Aviation 
as a lifetime job. Already holding his private pilot's license, his intense de- 
sire to do his best served him and the Navy well, and should continue to do 
so. A keen interest in design has motivated Dan to spend many hours, pencil 
in hand, truning out previews of the 21st Century. It was well known that 
"Easy Dan" would give you the shirt off his back if it were not against regu- 
lations. Dan had his imaginary troubles with academics, but when the smoke 
cleared, even he had to admit that graduation was possible. His tact, sin- 
cerity, and friendly manner have left an impression that will never be for-

After reluctantly graduating from White Pine High School in Ely, Nevada, 
where he and his teammates chalked up a state championship in football his 
last year, Joe left his native "Indian Country" to embark on his service career 
as a buck private in the Army. While in the Army, Joe attended UMT at 
Fort Knox, Kentucky, from which he acquired the nickname "Umtee" at 
Navy. After football, Joe's favorite sport was deer-hunting. "Nothing like 
tramping those ole Nevada hills!" But generally you could find Joe either 
gazing at the pictures of his OAO, which completely covered his locker door, 
or wrestling with that Skinny book, his pet peeve.

Oakmont, Pennsylvania 

Bob's most satisfying pastimes were eating, dragging, playing football, and 
meeting people. His athletic interests were with the championship 150-pound 
football team, on which he played heads-up ball as guard. Bob spent a lot of 
time in the wrestling loft, too, and earned himself a letter and an award as 
champion 151-pound class during plebe year. Bob's natural ease with people, 
his pleasant personality, and his debonair attitude probably stemmed from his 
travels as an Army brat. Bob's post-graduation interests lie in the Marine 
Corps. With the natural sense of leadership he has, Bob should be an asset 
for this great Service.

Jim sailed to Navy straight from high school, but it didn't take him long to 
overtake even the savviest college men. He stood on top with the best of 
them; we could almost count on Jim getting 4.0. The helm of a yawl held 
as much mystery to Jim as the slide rule, for his favorite pastimes were sailing 
and dragging; he often combined both for a week end of fun on a yawl. He 
even found enough spare time to take care of circulation for the Trident mag- 
azine. Jim looked toward wings after graduation. With his admirable record 
and promise, as well as his friendly manner, he was a likely candidate for the 
man most likely to succeed. 

CharleA Jfoward (Brown 

Monroe, Louisiana 

After many strange and startling adventures in younger life, and a year at 
college, Charley found himself face to face with a career. Not to be daunted 
by the newness of the whole thing, he waded in and took over. However, 
he was not without the usual troubles. Dago, the Executive Department, 
and females were among the things that bothered him. Too much of the 
former items and never enough of the latter. Brownie's first love at the 
Academy was the Old Indian Game. The Log and Public Relations took up 
some more of his free time. Charley's hard work and serious attitude have 
earned him the admiration of all who know him.

Big Spring, Texas 

After high school and two years a RM in the Navy, Dick came to the Acad- 
emy via NAPS. Fond of golf and always one of the stars of the company 
steeplechase team, he proved his ability in the field of sports, but his best 
efforts were with the fair sex; his quiet, bashful manner endeared him to 
thousands. Qu'est-ce que's clean living and high ideals must have brought 
him good fortune, for he won many friends, all the shakes, and landed the 
best deals. His friendliness and ability to remain undisturbed by the little 
things that go wrong in life will make him successful and happy in his branch 
of the Navy. 

William Jwarold Campbell 

Pasadena, California 

Formerly an electronics striker in the Navy, Bill attended NAPS at Bainbridge 
before entering the Academy. After plebe summer, the Log and later the 
Splinter began to take up most of his spare time. The few hours remaining 
were used in preparing shows for the old "Inside USNA" programs and the 
new "Welcome Aboard" series. Seen together every week end, Bill and his 
drag became one of the traditional sights on the grounds. Son of a Chief 
Boatswain with thirty years in the regular Navy, it looks like Bill will carry 
on the family tradition in the line.

Willie, though an earnest and sincere Navy man, managed to spend at least 
50% of his time at NA flat on his rack. When football season rolled around, 
he felt the tingle of brisk air, but just rolled over and gazed out the window 
at the varsity football practice. Bill joined the Navy at his home town after 
graduating from high school and went to Great Lakes where he was selected 
for Navy Prep at Bainbridge. Bill passed academics ably but didn't push 
stars. He won plebe numerals in fencing and was the backbone of the fighting 
reserve of many good company or batt teams. "Hey, uh, who woke me up?"

played squash and baseball and lettered in tennis. Skeet's love life has been

prepared to meet the discipline of the Naval Academy. As any cat, however, 
Tony found swimming tests difficult. Dancing, any kind, was natural for

Since the youngster cruise which took Alan to France, he has harbored a strong 
fascination for the Continental way of life. Besides enjoying the French 
language, he spent much of his spare time enlarging his English vocabulary. 
We knew him as that steady type who never got overly excited, and always 
had a broad smile and a kind word for all. That he possessed a sensitive 
nature was testified to by his love of classical music and his perusing of books 
on the history of Art. It may seem paradoxical that Alan maintained religi- 
ously his schedule of physical exercise along with his artistic bent. His choice 
of ideal duty would be that of Naval Attache in Paris, with a well-equipped 
gymnasium nearby.

used to the confining walls of Bancroft and restrictions placed on him, but 
like everything else he learned to take it in stride. He also quickly learned to 
gallop over the Skinny and Math P-works — his fruit; but was slowed down 
to a slow trot by his biggest nemesis — the Bull Department. Ced has set his 
sights for a career in Uncle Sam's Air Force and a certain belle up Baltimore

cornhusker humor combined with his natural ability will take him far.

Jack hailed from Blytheville, Arkansas. Blytheville! We couldn't think of a 
word that described Jack better than the word "blithe." His joviality and 
lightheartedness when times were tough helped our morale considerably. 
With these attributes Jack won many friends during his two years in the Fleet. 
After spending a few months at Bainbridge, his kind-hearted spirits were 
gladly accepted into ol' Navy Tech. Jack's keenest interest was in Mathe- 
matics, although much of his time was spent as a varsity member of the

which means he'll really be going places.

Casey came to Navy Tech via the Class of '48 at Bainbridge after two years 
in bell bottoms as an Aviation Radioman. His big heart, ready wit, and 
laugh that topped 'em all, blended well into his genial personality. Never 
too busy to extend a helping hand to anyone, plebe or firstie, he managed to 
hold down his slot in the academics while devoting a minimum to the books. 
Holding offices in the Amateur Radio Club showed his big interest in that 
field. When we run across him in the years to come, he undoubtedly will be 
the proud possessor of the same love for the Navy and the same salty cap with 
a perpetual starboard list.

he fought for his company and was always a leader. In second class year Bob's

"Horky," after spending one year at college, entered the Academy via the 
NROTC quota — tales of "Dear Ol' Dartmouth" never ceased to be retold. 
Finding that stars were procured with little effort, the "Demon" trying to 
fill his free hours, became a "joiner." The Marching Band, Foreign Language 
Club, Chapel Choir, and WRNV were only a few of the organizations which 
helped pass his free time. An imaginative mind, with the assistance of a 1930

on many occassions. Avid for Aviation, but quite willing to accept line duty, 
his keen mind and quick wit will assist him in attaining success in a Naval

Dale was considered one of our southern citizens; most of his life was spent 
in Key West, Florida, the Southern-most city in the U.S. He followed the 
footsteps of his three older brothers when he joined the Navy, and after fif- 
teen months in the Fleet entered USNA. Academics offered little difficulty 
but Dale's pet gripe was against the Physical Training Department who 
insisted on testing his ability to swim 220 yards in "full dress." His intelli- 
gence, splendid personality, and quick thinking should always put him in 
that top 10% bracket in fitness reports throughout his Naval career.

Here is one son that Chicago's South Side can boast wasn't born with a 
tommy gun in his hand; in fact, Bud's interests lay on the cultural side. Aca- 
demically, "Stars" never had to strain — craving Bull as his favorite dish. 
The PT Department always gave him trouble — except when fall rolled 
around and he got his chance to play company soccer. Above all, he wanted 
to write, and when he wasn't writing that weekly twelve-page letter to the 
girl back home, he could be found pounding out stories for the Log. Unde- 
cided he may be on what duty to claim, but you can be assured that if there 
is a publication handy, with Ralph around, it won't be dull reading.

Wilmington, North Carolina 

Coy came to us via the U.S. Army's Paratroops where he acquired a sense 
of nonchalance that became part of his life. As a scholar he managed to stay 
in the middle of the class, despite determined efforts of the Steam Department 
to deny him this honor during his four years. Always ready for a frolic, he 
enjoyed his after-game hours in Baltimore immensely and brightened our 
blue Monday morning breakfasts by relating the histories of those week-end 
operations. An ardent member of the Radiator Squad, he gallantly resisted 
all appeals of athletic captains to compete in their respective sports. Coy 
aimed for Air Force blue and its current crop of jets upon graduation.

"The Bear," pride of Cleveland, completed a two-year hitch in the Navy 
before he arrived at the Naval Academy. The weeping and wailing of the 
pretty damsels he left behind still resounds throughout the nation. Foz's 
secondary pastime was tennis, squash, or handball, but his primary interest 
was fair young lovelies of Annapolis. Throwing a party? The old "Whitey" 
was always a good one to have around. Bill had no real difficulties at Navy 
Tech, but held no high regard for French or swimming tests. Graduation 
found Bill looking to the sea as a line officer. "The Old Bear," with his ready 
wit, intelligence, many and diverse capabilities, will be a definite asset to 
the Naval Service.

Ernie's first taste of military came at New York Military Academy before 
the lure of the sea brought him to Navy. Finding academics a perennial 
headache, he turned his talents to the Academy's extracurricular field. The 
Radio, Photographic, M. E., and Foreign Relations Clubs — as well as the 
Forensic Society — claimed most of his time. Boxing and wrestling became 
his favorite sports. During week-end hours, "King Farook" left many a 
member of the feminine world in doubt while capably playing the field. 
Apparently Ernie likes the sea-going atmosphere of his home town, New 
London, for he's looking towards subs as a Naval future.

The Fort found it easy to wear stars, and his pet gripe about the fruit aca-

him that Crabtown offered considerable local talent, and he was thereafter

also had his eye on Naval Aviation. In future years, you can write him

summer, though, he confined his study of "women" to "woman." The lucky 
gal flashed her smile patiently around the Duke University campus till grad- 
uation, but we knew where her heart lay. The music column you read every

Rarely has a midshipman gone through the Academy with such a variety of

mates in good humor and high morale with his matchless and innumerable

addition, he found time for active work on the Reception Committee, despite 
heavy week-end schedules involving a cute little girl he met in Paris on 
youngster cruise. A confirmed party man, Bill could hold his own in any

Ansonia, Connecticut 

John left Ansonia, Connecticut, in November of 1946 and enlisted in the 
Navy. He studied at photographer's school at Pensacola before heading for 
Bainbridge where he competed successfully for a Fleet Appointment to the 
Academy. It was hard to tell whether John's first love was stripping an 
assortment of cameras and field glasses and putting them back together again, 
or dragging an assortment of queens on week ends. There was plenty of 
trouble for this New Englander during plebe year due to Skinny and Math, 
but with those behind, it became a pretty sure thing that the Submarine 
Service would receive another fine officer.

For some reason Mac decided to trade Reno and Levis for Annapolis and 
blue service. From the beginning of plebe year "El Toro" could be found 
almost anywhere with some type of athletic gear in hand. Academics came 
easily, despite trials with Ordnance and Gunnery. Few hops escaped his 
attention, and during the fall, his cries of "On to Baltimore" echoed through 
the fifth wing. Regardless of his pessimism and worries of falling hair, he 
always seemed to get on the right team. He did all right.

"There I was, 30,000 feet, doing 320, when suddenly" — excuse me, folks, 
let me introduce the narrator, "Mac." He was quite well known at Navy — 
being the shortest man in the class and our only Naval Aviator (No. 25,326). 
Academics were fruit, a savoir and well up there in front. As a member of 
the gym team, he made many points for the Blue and Gold. With the women, 
"Mac" gave the impression of being shy, but don't let him fool you, he was 
quite a lover under the right conditions. His sincerity, friendly manner, and 
infectuous grin won him many friends, and he will best be remembered as 
the guy who left Navy wearing the same Ensign's uniform he arrived in in 
48. Good luck, Ace!

From a small farming community, Frank graduated from Central Catholic 
High of Toledo where he became adept at Mathematics and things of a

Hilder Prep and had little trouble in applying himself academically. He 
found time between extra duty and swimming tests to take part in company 
and battalion sports, anchoring the third batt bowling team during second

Mitch did everything to the best of his ability. He was an OAO man, and 
a great many of his recreation hours were spent writing and dragging. In the 
sport program, he showed up well in 150-pound football, and ran the half 
mile and hurdle events during spring track. Hailing from Harrisburg, 
Pennsylvania, Marty could tall-tale circles around most Texans and seemed 
to think if his state were closer to Ireland, he could call it Heaven. His 
studies caused him little worry and his ever-present smile often brought us

Bob became "Joe College" at Gustavus Adolphus College in his home state

Appointment in hand, Bob came to Navy and settled down to some real 
book learning. Academics were his main problems with Skinny on the top 
of the list. Swimming tests also caused several moments of anguish. Com- 
pany and batt sports took up a great deal of his time with outside activities 
taking the rest; the most outstanding of these being his OAO. On graduation 
he hoped to see as much as possible of the Air Force, and we are sure that 
they will be glad to see him.

With the attitude that life is too short to worry, Fig breezed through Navy's 
academics without a glance. Between whiskey, song, and chasing women 
through Sherwood Forest, Fig never had much time for other more approved

promise successfully with the system. In academics he managed to hurdle the 
obstacles imposed by the Math and Skinny Departments. His sincerity and 
friendly manner will insure his success in the Naval Air Corps.

Washington, D.C. 

Ken came to the Naval Academy with his lacrosse stick and a big smile. His 
flashy stick work won him a place on the lacrosse team and his cheerful smile 
won him a place in the hearts of his classmates. Always nonchalant, Ken's 
easygoing attitude reached into the realm of the female. Never selfish about 
these things, he spread his talents over a bevy of beauties. Even New York 
felt his sting as he rolled them in the aisles on BLIND DATE and walked 
off with the prize model. The Marine Corps will receive Ken's attention 
upon graduation and eventually he'll be roaming the skies in his father's

Lee entered the confines of Bancroft early in June of 1948 equipped with a 
ready smile and a sense of humor, which, although tried severely at times by 
the machinations of the Bull and Executive Departments, enabled him to 
stay on the brighter side of life throughout his four years at Navy. Noted for 
his love of relaxation, Welsh could rarely be found with a textbook in his 
hand, but still managed to "forty" an inordinate amount. Though he ran 
the gamut from southern belles to daughters of his native California, no 
femme seemed able to find the key to his heart. His native intelligence and 
amiable disposition assure Lee of future success in the Service.

Bosquet Neill Wev, Jr., was tagged "Biscuit" before the stencil ink was dry 
plebe summer. He entered Bancroft via a Presidential Appointment, after 
prepping at Severn School. A sandblower, he had no trouble keeping his 
girls. "The Schnork" had a line, caught himself, and 'was tied and pinned 
before the end of second class year. Water-minded in sports, Biscuit was a 
coxswain plebe year, a dinghy sailor youngster year, and managed the dinghy 
team the last two years. The job of Log company representative occupied 
the rest of the time of this Fleet-bound Navy Junior. It was a tough fight 
with the books, but he won out.

Several years ago, Ed decided upon a good Texas education and he went off 
to A & M from his home town of girls' schools only, Denton, Texas. While 
an Aggie, he learned a few tricks of the military trade, but was induced to 
get it "hotter and heavier" at the Academy. Although playing football in 
high school, he switched to soccer at the broad banks of the Severn, where he 
played for four years. On air cruise, he became one of the hottest pilots ever 
to return still a second classman. His two years of college helped him con- 
siderably, and quite often helped a few of the rest of us even more.

When Bob decided to do something, it usually got done. Perseverance is a 
quality hard to find in the average man, but it was one of Bob's characteristics 
for four long years; it kept those stars shining brightly, and made possible his 
illustrations found throughout the Log and Trident magazines. Somewhat 
of a perfectionist, he disliked anything that was not done well. His intelli- 
gence, good looks, and genius for self-promotion among the fairer sex kept 
the ranks of his female followers well filled. Upon graduation, Willy in- 
tends to go into Naval aviation as a stepping stone toward future work in 
aeronautical engineering.

Conditioning himself for plebe year by what he claimed was a far more strenu- 
ous rat year at Virginia Military Institute, Des eased his way into the Navy 
school. Taking plebe rates and academics with as little effort as any dignified 
southern gentleman would, he coasted through the institute and kept his 
OAO completely tied up. Interested in all athletics, he confined himself to 
boxing and soccer. His professional knowledge obtained at VMI and the 
Academy convinced him that the United States Marine Corps Aviation was 
the only organization in which to practice upon graduation. He dreams of 
being a jet jockey for the Air Force only as an alternative.

Hailing from the District of Columbia, "Zach" embarked upon his Naval 
career as an enlisted man in 1946. He served aboard the V.S.S. Wisconsin 
for a short cruise and then attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School 
at Bainbridge, Maryland. Sea stories were among Zach's favorite pastimes. 
Anyone living in the sixth wing who happened to gaze across Smoke Park 
in the wee hours of the morning always saw a light burning someplace on 
the second deck. That was Zach diligently grinding away at his Navigation 
or Mathematics which gave him no end of trouble. Naval aviation was his 
aim upon graduation.

"Mo" came to USNA from the golden West. Before coming to the Academy, 
he was a bus and truck driver and an installer for the Western Electric Com-

Small, unpretentious, but with a potential comparable to an atom bomb, 
Ray was not to be shoved around. High aspiration and determination and a 
pair of twinkling eyes are what he'll go a long way with. Ray came to 
USNA from the verdant hills of Vermont via Norwich University. Drag- 
ging was his favorite occupation . . . not just now and then for "Cip," but 
every possible week end, and always a queen. Proficiency in Dago doomed 
him to speaking at the Spanish Club banquets. The plebes viewed his voice 
of defiance and authority with trepidation. Ray's a lover of the wild blue 
yonder, and sure to make a name for himself in Naval aviation.

Duane "Andy" Anderson — Oshkosh's donation to National Defense —

fought. Andy's superhuman plans for beating the system had the sword car- 
riers reeling. Mr. Andy, as he was affectionately called by the firsties, was 
one of the most "reg" plebes in the 19th Company; to make up for time lost 
in the hospital, he studied Reef Points and USNAR for hours on end. The

cause of his extensive experience at kite flying and Yellow Peril navigation, 
he determined to become a hot jet pilot.

Leroy comes to us from Syracuse, New York, via the Navy. In high school

joyable. Come graduation day Gustav intends to enter the Line and even-

through the hallowed halls, and he has added to the confusion by struggling 
with the guitar and spending a year on the rifle team. Deciding to spend 
more time in the great out-of-doors, he also participated on the dinghy team 
for a season. On the intellectual side of the ledger, he was a member of the

he won the respect, friendship, and overwhelming admiration of all hands. 
Possessing natural ability as a leader, Tom was well saturated with Navy salt

In keeping with his academic keenness Tim was an active member of the

with the sub squad. Beech didn't seem to mind subs, however, for he hoped 
to join the silent service after graduation. It was a constant wonder to all of

Before arriving at Navy, Blackie distinguished himself as one of the "big

rough plebe summer in the hospital watching television, movies, and playing

Department, particular at exam time. Academics out of the way things were 
much easier, and he began to enjoy three favorite pastimes : the radio, rack

Upon graduation Paul desires line duty and later possibly sub duty.

of time before he adjusted himself to the Navy way. An all-around athlete,

Robert, from nearby Arlington, Virginia, hit Navy fresh from the rigors of 
a Rat's existence at Virginia Tech. Bob spent most of his time dodging the 
cross-country and steeplechase teams and worked sports events for the Public

The harmonica-playing, ukulele-wielding crooner, the regal Earl of Chinn, 
Clancy, was loved by all. A ferocious 6' 2" 200-pounder on the gridiron or 
wrestling mat, few people expected the gentle, easy manner characteristic of 
Clancy. Colorful Colorado contributed this fine specimen of manhood to 
Navy, but not until he had spent a year in the Phi Delta Theta at Colorado 
U. Although Clancy proved himself a hotrod pilot at Pensacola during sec- 
ond class summer, and an able seaman on youngster cruise, he was never the 
same after he lost his glasses pulling a classmate out of the Severn during a 
YP drill. Much to the regret of the Air Corps and the line, our Chinn seems 
destined for the Supply Corps.

As "For God, for Country, and for Yale" died on his lips, Larry turned his 
gaze to seaward. Yale lost a capable student and Navy gained a talented 
musician and lover of sports. Hailing from New Haven, Connecticut, this 
promising young man devoted his free time to the NA-10, the Concert Band,

Straight from the heart of the Indianhead Country came the "Great Dane." 
Because he did not see eye-to-eye with the Dago Department, plebe year 
wasn't fruit. Don, who was usually ready to let his basso ring forth at the 
slightest provocation, expended his excess energy in the Choir, Glee Club, and

Departments. With a cheery "Roger Out" he leaves Navy Tech for that 
wild blue yonder.

Fair Harvard lost a potential intellectual when it gave up Jim to the Navy. 
While here, though, he changed his ways and adapted himself to its quite dif- 
ferent system with little or no strain. Jim's "brace" at all times might have 
been more appreciated at West Point, but it certainly did him no harm here. 
Dago and Bull were his academic dishes and put him high in the class in spite 
of his five thumbs at plebe "drawing." He also mastered his PT worries in

in his eyes. It wasn't the last time he clutched, but he never saw stars again. 
Ed's first tiff with the system came with water. Presumably in retaliation 
for some cutting remarks concerning the fitness of same for beverage purposes, 
the stuff did not buoy him up. In short, Ed sank — a severe handicap with the

his atrocious spelling was the reason for the sudden influx of spelling exer-

Whether dragging or not, "Art" seldom let a day of liberty go by without

the books, he just took them as they came and he always came out on top. 
When it came to dragging, there never was too much of a favorite; as a mat-

on the executive swimming squad from plebe summer to second class year. 
He hopes to drop to the depths with the Submarine Service after first seeing 
the world with the "Tin Can" Fleet. Having no OAO waiting for him, 
Tony will undoubtedly become a lover of international renown in the Fleet, 
having started during youngster cruise on the streets of "Paree." Upon grad- 
uation, the Academy will lose, but some lucky wardroom will gain, a Red 
Sox fan second only to Tom Yawkey.

uhomad Paul Schurr 

Malta, Montana 

The "Indian" spent his pre-Navy days around Malta, Montana, where he 
learned to love the outdoors. He likes to hunt, fish, and eat, and at times 
he demonstrates his desire to answer the "Call of the Wild" by going into 
a tribal dance. "Tepee" was active in intramural sports, dragging, and the 
sincere worship of Tecumseh. "Wigwam" has constantly been easygoing 
and is the life of every party but denies any blood relation to any of the" origi- 
nal Americans" in spite of the fact that he looks, talks, acts, and sings like 
an Indian — he even snores savagely. Tom plans to be a fly boy after leaving 
the sheltering wings of Bancroft. 

john lAJilliam Schwartz 

Miami, Arizona 

Johnny came East along the Santa Fe Trail to Navy Tech from Miami, 
Arizona. He found earning his stars much easier than jumping cacti. Johnny 
failed to acquire a nickname, but if he had, it would surely have had a con- 
nection with the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. When not expounding 
the virtues of his native state, Johnny spent his time at the gym, participating 
in intramural sports, or managing the fourth battalion football team. Johnny 
is also known to set the fair sex atwitter — must be the wave in his hair he 
has spent four years cultivating. He has his eyes on a pair of Air Force wings 
and a happy future in the wild blue yonder. 

JJoucl uhorval Seljod 

Clifton, Texas 

Straight from the 'wild and wooly waterhole of Clifton, Texas, stormed 
Lloyd Thorval Seljos, "The roughest, toughest, shootinest hombre ever to 
reign a horse into the Naval Academy." Dome, like any hairless eight ball, 
could always be found pocketed in a corner sack enjoying his favorite pastime 
of resting. He was known for his speed and prowess on steeplechase and 
cross-country courses. When answering yes or no questions, the oratorical 
genius's sage won him many votes of aggravation in the Forensic Society. 
If the optometrist does not prescribe a black patch for the last good eye, Dome 
will flower some happy destroyer squadron with his glowing personality.

Ldwin Calhoun shiver 

Spartanburg, South Carolina 

The Colonel, pride of the magnolia and cotton country, shed his cadet greys 
of Clemson College and gave up chemical engineering for Navy blue. Ed 
was noted for his quick wit, and in spite of a hankering to be a dyed-in-the- 
wool southern barrister surrounded by mint juleps, he found time for the 
150-pound football team plus varsity soccer and battalion lacrosse. He also 
found time to be on the Ring Committee, Pyeef Points staff, and added many 
sports and fiction stories to the Log. One of his chief dislikes was a dragless 
week end — not having a special girl, Ed played the field. After graduation, 
he hoped to go to Pensacola and make Naval Air Corps his career. 

Verne iVatAon Smith 

Portland, Oregon 

Fulfilling his life-long ambition by receiving an NROTC Appointment to 
the Naval Academy, Smitty left his tennis racquet and carefree life at the 
University of California and got down to business as a full-time sailor. Find- 
ing that academics were no strain for him, Verne devoted much of his time 
to the progress of the newly formed Marching and Concert Bands. Although 
constantly reminding us of the joint merits of California and Oregon, he 
found little fault with many of the local gals. We all look forward to the 
outcome of submarine warfare when Verne receives his dolphins and applies 
the ideas he acquired from reading Astounding Science Fiction. 

JiuciuA J\ouinAon Squler, jr. 

Broken Bow, Nebraska 

It came as no surprise to learn that Bill teethed on a marlinspike while work- 
ing turk's heads on the slats of his crib. Bill came to the Academy with more 
Navy know-how than many of us have compiled in our four years. A seaman 
of no mean ability, Bill obtained his yawl command youngster year and we 
were indebted to him for the many times that he took us drag-sailing aboard 
his boat. In years to come, we will remember Bill's blond hair, his million- 
dollar smile, his rough-and-ready football, and above all, his cheerful readi- 
ness to lend a helping hand whenever needed.

Lewistown, Montana 

"'Hey, Dick, have you got a screwdriver?" and similar phrases often floated 
to the ears of this master mechanic who could fix anything from a radio to 
an automobile with a piece of wire and a pair of pliers. When he wasn't in 
his sack or on top of Memorial Hall working on some antenna for the 
Radio Club, he could be found in a one-sided bull session about his home 
state or the West in general. One of our eligible bachelors, he looked to a 
future of peering through a periscope. Thirty years from now, when the Navy 
is giving out pensions for faithful service, the name of R. H. Stamm will 
head the list. 

joAeph K' Stanley 

Cambridge, Massachusetts 

It would be hard to determine which Joe Stanley considers more important — 
his Air Crewman's wings or his weight lifting gear. Joe, a bonafide member 
of the terrible trio of Cooke, Stanley, and Wilder, came to Tech after serving 
as a radio-gunner in a torpedo bomber. He lays claim to being one of the 
few left wing Navy juniors at the Academy. Both his dad and his grand- 
father were Chief Gunner's Mates. He will long be remembered by his class- 
mates as a guy with a sharp tongue and ready wit. Joe expects to continue 
his air career in the Navy Air Corps after putting in his "Tin-Can" time. 

cArthur S\. Stark, jr. 

Fremont, Nebraska 

Art headed eastward in '48 from the glades of sunny Nebraska to settle in 
Annapolis for four years, schooling at the Naval Academy. Athletics oc- 
cupied most of Art's spare time and served as his hobby as well. Lettering 
in football, basketball, track, and golf at Fremont High School in Fremont, 
where he received his secondary schooling, he participated in these same sports 
at Navy, as well as serving on the 1952 Hop Committee. While at the 
Academy his future plans extended little beyond graduation, but he did plan 
to enter Naval aviation.

Williston Park, Long Island, New York 

Jim or to those who knew him, "Rockey," came to dear old Navy Tech from 
the Fleet. As a matter of fact, he can hardly wait to get back to the Fleet. 
Those were the good old days for Rockey — no studies, no sub squad, no wor- 
ries about swimming tests — oh, what a life. Jim was the mainstay of the 
sub squad from the time he entered USNA. When he wasn't "up-out-to- 
gethering," Jim was either trying to get home to Long Island, or else dragg- 
ing down here. The Fleet will be getting an easy man to please in the person 
of Jim Stone, for Jim will be quite content with a full Joe pot and a comfort- 
able rack. 

lAJUlLam cAnthony, Studabaker 

Berkeley, California 

After trailing the USN around the world in the capacity of a Navy junior, 
Bill decided to take the ominous step and fall into the hands of Bancroft Hall. 
It didn't take long to recover though. Academics soon befriended him and 
Stude found many diversions in the fcmmes. Plebe year was something to 
forget, but later years found him wearing stars and leading cheers for the 
Blue and Gold in Babe Ruth Stadium. He put his OK on grades, gals, and 
good times; after four years, Bill showed that it was possible to have all three. 
His sincerity and assiduous efforts will take him a long way. 

Stanley, J\unyon SwanAon 

Marietta, Georgia 

In keeping with the traditions of a true southern gentleman, "Swanee" on 
leaving his home town, Marietta, Georgia, chose the University of the South 
as his school and Kappa Alpha as his fraternity. After carefully noting that 
Annapolis was below the Mason-Dixon Line, he packed his Confederate 
flag and headed for Crabtown. When not pursuing his first love, sailing, 
Stan managed to divide his time among as many girls as possible. Though 
no star man, Swanee always managed to keep the academic departments at 
bay. Upon graduation, Swanee hoped to make a career in Naval aviation 
but whatever branch of the Navy gains his service, there'll be a flock of 
friends cheering him on.

Svend Lrllng, UnotnaJ 

Beaufort, South Carolina 

From far off in the Golden West came the greatest reader of Western Stories 
the Naval Academy ever had. He can quote them all from Max Brand to 
W. C. Tuttle; his library of horse sagas totals some 300 copies. Sometimes 
referred to as an encyclopedia of sports, "Buz" liked to play soccer, handball, 
and softball. Set had no trouble at all with academics, except when Skinny 
gave him grief. Plebe year, "Buz" spent 6 months on the sub squad ... he 
resembles a rock in the water. His main ambition is to get doctor's degrees 
in Law and Criminology from the University of Harvard, but until then, he 
wants to fly multi-engine aircraft for the U.S. Navy. 

Jwenry, c4. Vomuari 

Cohoes, New York 

Joe came to Navy Tech via Bainbridge Prep after a two-year hitch in Uncle 
Sam's Fleet. A miniature Atlas, he could usually be fround spending his spare 
time lifting weights in his room. A close scrape with the Steam Department 
during plebe year inspired this intensive studying. A natural athlete, Joe 
boxed and wrestled while at NAPS but a knee injury put a damper on his 
aspirations at Navy. Definitely no Red Mike, he could always spare a week 
end or two for the ladies, and rarely a hop passed which he failed to attend. 
Four years at Navy found Joe engaged in plebe gym, intramural sports, the 
Newman Club, and the Italian Club. His congenial personality will carry 
Joe far in the Service. 

jfame3 Llliot Uomlin 

New London, Texas 

Jim killed a year at Kilgore Junior College before dropping anchor at Navy. 
Skinny and a few other departments tried to send him back to the land of the 
Rio Grande and the Border Patrol, but he thwarted them at every turn. "I'm 
telling you, she's a queen," kept everyone on the lookout for his newest gal, 
and his harem continually increased in size, although he never gave the nod 
to any special senorita. When aviation claims his talents, sack-time will be 
demoted to his third love, ranking behind women and flying, but he will 
always give all three a fair share of his attention in years to come.

Washington, D.C. 

This Navy junior received a territorial appointment from Alaska, but claimed 
Washington, D.C, where he attended Woodrow Wilson High School and 
American University,- as his home town. Academics held little fear for the 
wiry D.C. lad, as he mastered the ABC's of Navy Tech with comparative 
ease. However, the Physical Training Department forced him to exert him- 
self a bit to conquer their swimming tests. As for the opposite sex, anytime 
a fair lassie came within range of the "Norseman's" 20 20 vision, he became 
completely fascinated. Tom hopes to join a destroyer division upon grad- 
uation, where, with his sense of humor and easy manner, he should win many

Sarasota, Florida 

Trof left Sarasota, Florida, at the age of seventeen to join the Navy. Three 
salty years later, George decided that the Navy was his career and so — Navy 
Tech. Company sports in the form of steeplechase and soccer were his only 
athletic endeavors, but the Juice Gang claimed more and more of his time. 
Training received as a white hat stood him in good stead for making a hit 
with the ferns and most week ends found him dragging some sweet young 
thing. Academics never seemed to faze him much, with Dago being the 
least loved. Upon graduation, Trof was determined to get back to submarines 
where he spent part of his enlisted career. 

jamed Scott Uroutman 

Hannibal, Missouri 

Originally a guide in the Mark Twain cave, Jim turned from a spelunker to 
a line candidate and entered USNA via Hannibal La-Grange College. Plung- 
ing into the eternal struggle, he remained unscratched except for the almost 
disasterous pitfalls of swimming and obstacle tests. Jim let it be known early 
who was master in the academic circles of Sampson and Maury, but remained 
subordinated in the Natatorium and Farragut Field circles. Definitely an 
asset to our bull sessions, he graced us with rare good nature. Jim divided 
his time between the Public Relations Committee and yawl sailing, working 
tirelessly in both.

Curt, after much deliberation, came to us from Rensselaer, New York. At 
first he found the academics a bit trying, but he was always able to squeak 
by somehow. Being a dealer at heart, Curt managed to get himself tied up 
with the Brigade Activities Committee. On the side, Curt managed to do 
his share on the intramural sports squads along with some work on station 
WRNV and with the Foreign Relations Club. Never a Red Mike, Curt 
could always be found with a cute drag on the week ends. Upon graduation 
Curt hopes to be one of those embarking for Pensacola and those Navy wings 
of gold. 

john Warren vValden 

Camden, New Jersey 

"Smilin' Jack" — the pride of Camden, New Joisey-Hey," ■was a Naval Re- 
servist with one year at the College of South Jersey before vacationing on the 
Severn. During his four years at Navy Tech, Jack's only serious difficulty 
was with figures. But Einstein and Valentino combined couldn't have done 
better than Jack did, keeping six women available and happy at the same 
time — a masterpiece of tact and diplomacy. Batt football, Public Relations, 
and an early morning disk jockey program on WRNV were Jack's claim to 
fame. However, it was in those boxing tests that Jack won acclaim and the 
reputation of "One Punch Walden," flooring all comers. 

john CUdworth Ward 

San Pedro, California 

One of the Golden State's most enthusiastic unofficial members of the Cham- 
ber of Commerce, Jack can be heard most anytime singing "Hail, San Pedro, 
Hail." When not gazing at the pictures of the beautiful Pacific, the Juice 
Gang claimed most of his spare time. Finding academics an interesting di- 
verson, he had little trouble keeping his stars. His chief claim to fame was 
holding the dubious honor of being the only one to go swimming in the 
Severn during YP drill, in uniform and raingear. As to future plans, he can 
be heard to say (as he confidently refuses the white cane and seeing-eye dog 
offered by the Medical Department), "I'd like to fly!"

Paul yeltmacher white, jr. 

Claremont, California 

Paul spent a year at Pomona College prior to arriving at Crabtown. His 
knowledge of negative infinity and cybernetics soon won him a reputation 
as a Math brain. Being one of the few midshipmen able to argue with a 
Skinny prof and be right, Paul established himself as number one for a class- 
mate with a difficult problem. All his talents were not scientific, however. 
He is a great fan of Dixieland jazz, and has much enthusiasm for sports. 
Though adept at many, football seems to be his favorite. With his intelli- 
gence and friendliness, he will always be a credit to the Navy blue. 

William C Wilder 

Dalton, Massachusetts 

Hailing from western Massachusetts, Bill aspired to make his mark in the

him converted, and he hopes to be winding up SNJ's in front of those female

Joe, a product of Houston, Texas, spent two years at Woodberry Forest

his track work as a quarter-miler for the Navy team. A good student, Joe 
was a star man standing well in his class. Much of his free time, when not 
out running, was spent listening to "Dixieland," looking for chow, or plan- 
ning for some far distant week end. Jose was never one to pass up a good 
time, and the Paris, Baltimore, and air cruise liberties were right up his alley. 
Joe's hard work and clear thinking will be a welcome addition to the Fleet.

From the land of tall corn, "Nose" had taken many ribbings because of his 
prominent proboscis, but possessor of an easygoing personality, he just

then, but he always found time to give the thirteenth company softball and 
soccer teams able asistance. This slim-built lad knew his way around a dance 
floor and never failed to impress the lucky lass he had as a partner. Two 
weeks at Pensacola sold Jim on aviation, and if his nose can stand the alti- 
tude, he will seek a bird's-eye view.

john Charted young, 

Pacific Palisades, California 

The rigors of plebe year were a shock to Jack after a year of easy living with 
Sigma Nu at UCLA, but his brother, a forty-niner, showed him the way to 
Navy and pointed the way over many of the rough spots. Jack worked for 
Public Relations early in the game, progressing through sports announcing 
to program directing for WRNV. His few remaining leisure hours were 
often spent sailing any available boat or yacht. Chick had quite a way with 
the women, but his thoughts occasionally drifted West, and summer leaves 
never arrived soon enough. His understanding of people and personalities 
will make Jack many friends and carry him far.

Sioux Falls, South Dakota 

When Mr. Aldern, Sr., left Aldern, Norway, he 
brought with him a love for the sea which his son, 
Deane, naturally inherited. Living in South Da- 
kota where the largest body of water to be found 
was the cattle's drinking trough, Deane's heredi- 
tary love for King Neptune's Domain overcame 
his environmental love for the land, and he went 
down to the sea via USNA. Deane's diversions 
while at the Naval Academy consisted of writing 
small bundles of greetings to his OAO, sleeping, 
and playing basketball, in that order. Deane has 
decided to join the flying arm of the Navy, and 
time will surely prove him to be a capable and con- 
scientious officer.

Plebe year, Bull took our company by storm with his loving face and boom- 
ing voice. Beneath these two attributes, we found a serious fellow, contami- 
nated with reflections. The Citadel was his home before he came to USNA, 
but in just a few months, Harris changed; he became All-Navy. By the last 
count Bull had broken sixteen southern belles hearts; they couldn't resist his 
gentle manner. His perseverance will take him far. One of these days, 
Anderson will proclaim him their "favorite son." What a guy!

Pivar came to us from the Rubber City where he attended the University

coming to the Naval Academy. A dynamic little guy, he is well liked by all 
who know him. Active in intramural athletics, he competed with gusto. 
He spent many anxious hours waiting for letters from that gal in Cleveland. 
Despite a fondness for languishing in the sack, he was a star man. Pivar is 
looking forward to a long career in the Navy line.

Another staunch supporter of California, George had many and varied at- 
tributes, some which greatly improved life at the Academy, and others which 
aided the California Chamber of Commerce. Never one to complain about 
events that would wreck a man not of sterner stuff, his remedy was to take it 
easy and hit the sack when things looked black. For recreation George en- 
joyed a set of tennis, a swim, or some feminine attention. Possessing a rare 
sense of humor, he already had half the qualifications for his chosen field, 
that of a "hot" Naval aviator. With his pleasant yet serious nature, the 
Navy will always have a place for him.

The pride of the Dakota plains came to Navy by 
way of island duty in the Marine Corps, the Service 
he upheld on any occasion. "Be-Jerk" always 
had trouble teaching his instructors how to pro- 
nounce his name, and then wished he hadn't. Aca- 
demics kept Duwain tied to his desk a good part 
of the time, but he managed to turn out for com- 
pany sports, and could never be classified a Red 
Mike. Women and song he admired, although a 
good share of queens could not make him forget 
the girl back home. Leaving wine for others, he 
still couldn't be beaten as a liberty buddy, and all 
who knew him wish the best toward a successful 
career in the Marine Corps.

Turning against his Army ancestors, "Jack" took leave of Sarasota, Florida, 
to join us at Navy Tech. Well trained in his early life for the military, at 
Marion Institute, Marion, Alabama, he lost part of it, however, in his year 
at Severn Prep and two years of "party and ATO" at the University of 
Florida. One of the few things that refused to grow in Florida, he easily 
made up for his size with his splendid personality. His ability to return from 
each leave with a new "true love" was almost as astounding as the way he 
could always turn up late on cruise — just in time to miss the work and hit 
all the liberty.

Lubbock, Texas 

Although a pseudo-Texan, transplanted from Min- 
nesota, Bruce was an effective propaganda machine 
for the Lone Star State. His favorite conversa- 
tional topics were in this order : the gal he left 
behind, girls in general, and the great state of 
Texas. His familiar, "What are you, a wise guy?" 
echoed and re-echoed. Possessed of a natural wit 
and a flair for humor, Bruce, with his ready smile, 
could always be counted on to enliven a group. 
His literary skill and tireless effort on behalf of the 
Trident contributed greatly to its rejuvenated look. 
Btuce plans to pool his talents with Navy's Fly-

institution, the Five Cornered Fraternity. It was inevitable that stars should 
appear when he applied his hot rod experience to the technical end of the 
curriculum. Jack would like to get into CEC or use his business training 
from Southern Methodist University to advantage in the Supply Corps. In 
any event, his thoroughness, probing curiosity, and desire to learn should be 
assets in his future career.

Via Haddon Heights High School and Rutgers University, this fair-haired 
Jersey boy joined us here at Navy Tech as a member of the old "dirty-thirty." 
He started his stay off right by copping plebe letters in soccer and track, and 
continued his athletic career as a mainstay for company football and cross- 
country. Brownie was a firm beliver in the old adage, "Don't let your studies 
interfere with your education." A real social slash, he let few week ends 
slip by without dragging his favorite. After graduation, it'll probably be off 
to Pensacola and then, with a break, back to Lakehurst with LTA and maybe 
a family.

Poor Dave was no sooner born in the hamlet of Beaver Falls, than he was 
on the move and he hasn't stopped yet. He has, at one time or another, 
called practically every section of the east coast home, a real testimonial to 
the alertness of the local constables! With his father an officer in the Infantry, 
Dave experienced the normal amount of moving done by an Army family, 
ending up at Navy via NAPS and the Fleet. Since his arrival at Navy, he 
has been entertaining his classmates with his keen sense of humor and his 
dry time-bomb wit, while absorbing his share of the kidding (a la sub squad). 
With brains, personality, and a laugh to guide him, Dave is going places.

After successfully completing his two-year struggle 
with the Russian professors, Alex coasted through

of daydreaming of his OAO. Because of his gi-

as a likely goalie prospect and Alex made good in 
his customary manner. Two and a half years at

continue to provide both West Virginia and the 
Navy with reason for being proud of him.

Merchant Marine Academy at San Mateo. Once here, he seemed to feel

though he did give Russian a hard time. Firmly convinced that he was play-

He speaks of true love, but doesn't classify his OAO as "One and Only"

■was not averse to tilting a few with the troops,

he had no trouble with academics, he did not play

the possessor of many talents. Quiet and resourceful, Tiger played the field 
and found it very interesting along with his hobby and former occupation, 
Ordnance. He expended many ergs daily after class in the gym and worked

Lone Pine, California 

Lester was born and educated in a little oasis in the Mojave Desert called- 
Long Pine. The same town falls under the shadow of the famed Mt. Whitney 
at about 4 every afternoon. As a consequence of his habitat, "Punky" at 
times featured himself a born mountaineer, desert cowboy, folk-tune singer, 
and composer, and as the Sheik of Lone Pine. Though his true love was- 
music, Lester was also a very versatile athlete. He was third string on young- 
ster year's great 26th company touch football team, and broke all existing; 
records for the "B" swimming test (4 minutes flat). We are sure that Lester's 
likeable personality will stand him in good stead in the Fleet.

Gaining his early training on the great plains of 
Oklahoma, "Homburger" was a natural at track, 
and still holds state high school records. He stopped 
off a year at Oklahoma A & M before coming to 
Navy to be our number one high hurdler. A great 
competitor in all fields, he scored nearly as many 
points with the fair sex as he did on the cinder by 
dragging more than studying during his free time. 
A veteran of the "Flying Squadron," he had his 
sights set for Naval aviation. Sincerity and a quick 
and ready wit combined in Jim's personality make 
him a man to watch in the future.

no strain to Chester, so he preferred to spend his study time writing to his 
OAO or attending ME Club lectures. Not the athletic type, Chester man- 
aged to letter with the sub squad every year and also play on the company 
soccer and batt lacrosse teams. The Air Force was his choice for a career.

Budgie (I gotta go work out today — I guess) relaxed variously by singing 
songs of France with a muted guitar, and by ambling to McDonough Hall 
and battering an opponent in the ring — still with the same quiet smile on 
his face, and the same talented left. An old Crabtown and Farragut Academy 
man, Budg was in the midst of a drawing board session at the University 
of Hawaii's Architecture Dept., when he suddenly realized that those Navy 
wings looked pretty good. So, with the blessing of Dad and brother (both

up at Navy where his quiet manner was admired by all who knew him. A

After high school at Amsterdam, New York, Joe 
entered the Navy and served for two years as an 
Aviation Radioman. He never had trouble with 
blinker drills, but Joe's first love was sports; he 
discouraged plebes with his ability to answer far 
fetched "carry on questions," and in the fall he was 
found holding his own on the fifth batt football 
team. Plebe Christmas found Joe journeying to 
L. A. and he never ceased bragging about the won- 
ders of California. He thought the opposite sex 
was terrific too, and could be found dragging most 
anytime at Navy Tech's social events. Ambition

him toward the life of a sailor. When not on the verge of being pinned by

Wherever he goes, Tom's ability to combine work with play will earn him

Shortridge High School of Indianapolis, Indiana, 
presented us with 201 pound "Tubby" Parker, an 
all-State end of athletic prowess. While at Short- 
ridge, Evan found time to excell in the Skinny 
courses, but took no strain at Navy. The "Champ" 
devoted most of his talents to athletics, partici- 
pating in varsity football and wrestling. Rather 
shy, he never seriously contemplated the other sex, 
but after two years behind gray walls, he lost re- 
sistance and was occasionally seen escorting fair 
maidens hither and yon. His original aspiration 
was the submarine Service, but after a brief ten- 
day encounter with the briny deep, the Marine 
Corps may now look forward to extra added intel- 
lectual brawn.

When John arrived at Annapolis, he left behind a three-year hitch in the 
Navy. A conqueror of academics and a solver of people's problems, John 
was truly an asset to the Academy and his classmates. All his athletic en- 
deavors centered around the crew squad, and most afternoons he was found 
at Hubbard Hall working out. A zealous attitude for hard work, a desire 
to do things well the first time, and a generous and loyal spirit should make 
the Navy as proud of John, as he is of the Navy. He seemed to have taken 
a liking to the air, and the Fleet will probably get another good aviator at

Dwight was one of those strong, silent midwesterners, hailing from Dodge 
City, Kansas, in the heart of the wheat belt. He concentrated on academics 
at the Academy, although continuing to be the mainstay of his company 
cross-country and steeplechase teams. He had a little trouble with Skinny 
but managed to find time to participate in Masquerader's activities and to 
build muscles which were envied by his classmates. He was fond of the fairer 
sex, especially his OAO, whose picture seemed to entrance him each time 
he looked at it. Dwight might be the silent type, but he knew his own mind 
and was determined to pilot those Air Force Jets after he gets his 2nd lieu-

A man of many and varied interests, Phil decided that the farm was no place

donned the blue of USNA. A "zoomy" at heart — twenty-five hours in a 
flight log book — he fell in love with a jet during second class summer. After 
graduation, Phil again hoped to don the blue, this time courtesy of the Air

After attending high school in Buffalo, Detroit, 
St. Louis, and Kansas City, plus a year at Kansas 
City University, Chuck easily took Naval Academy 
life in stride. In high school he won three letters 
in baseball and one in soccer. He pitched a no hit, 
no run shutout for the Missouri All-Stars in the 
American Legion League. At the Academy he 
became a constant scorer in soccer. Chuck's talents 
weren't limited to athletics, however; he also blew 
a bugle in the Drum and Bugle Corps. An un- 
quenchable will to win kept Chuck well ahead of 
academics and will insure his success in his choice

An adept man with the sabre, the lacrosse stick, and the all-powerful slide

busily engaged in some sport, but he had a little trouble with his swimming 
tests due to an inherent lack of gills. A stalwart of the "Old Corps," Ray 
looked forward to that happy day when he could pin a couple of gold bars 
on his "Marine Greens." The volume of plebes beating a path to his door

Ole Clay, originating from the vast metropolis of Liberty, Mississippi, 
went to Hinds Junior College before coming to Navy. This lad had a knack 
of relaxing that was envied. Usually he was so relaxed that we found him 
limp, staring at the ceiling of his room with eyes closed; but that didn't 
detract from his live personality. We usually found him mingled with the 
boys and laughing the hardest of them all. Undoubtedly this feature in his 
make-up was of great value, because nothing ever fazed this southerner; he 
took things as they came, and laughed them off. The flyboys will benefit 
when C. W. joins them. His sense of humor and personality will certainly 
hold him in good stead.

All the way from Cleveland, Ohio, came Jim and his big smile. Ability and 
enthusiasm have rarely been combined in such a way. Whether behind or

than one victory to his speed and stamina. Sports didn't interfere with his 
social life, however, for week ends usually found him dragging with the

among the Fleet quota. His main interest after plebe year was improving

bring in a few points for the company cross-country, steeplechase, squash, and

working in the Photo Club, and a sweet gal who lived down Arlington way.

he won't be able to fly. See you up there!

hobby — shining shoes — but an interest in a 5' 7 " femme from the Baked Bean 
Country soon caused those shining toes to lose their luster, and the Red Mikes 
to gain another member. He will be sorely missed in the halls of Bancroft, 
but Tech's loss will be the wardroom's gain. 

Charles Jfenry, UJljeman 

Brooklyn, New York 

Growing up in that quaint fishing village known 
as Brooklyn gave Charlie a natural desire for the 
halls of Severn. In high school he earned letters in 
track by showing his competitors that feet are 
faster than the eye. At the Academy, he wriggled 
into a berth on the gym team by climbing rope, 
where strangely enough, use of the feet is not 
allowed. Bugs also led the Academy in the revival 
of that not-so-musical instrument, the ukulele. 
His uke soon had classmates calling him Burl — - 
among other things. Charlie's energy, enthusiasm, 
and quick smile will enliven many a wardroom in 
future years.

john Peyton cAlexander 

Towson, Maryland 

His father and brother having graduated from the Academy before him, it 
was a foregone conclusion that Jack would don the Navy blue. He waged 
the old three-way battle among academics, the sack, and pocket novels 
along with the rest of us. His six-foot-one-inch frame topped with dark 
curls was well known to the Baltimore and Washington femmes; a gentle- 
man through and through, he was never in want of their companionship. 
He amassed a library of photographs during his four years, and became a 
prolific, if not a proficient, photographer. Without a doubt, Jack will have 
a long and successful Naval career. 

John Jsjichmond cAlexander y jr. 

Elizabeth, New Jersey 

Alex came to the Academy from Elizabeth, New Jersey, where he lived the 
larger part of his life. Previous wanderings took him to Texas, Florida, and 
Washington, D.C., not forgetting his birth place Baltimore, Maryland. 
Being a Navy junior, he was acquainted with the Navy ways before entering 
the Trade School, but willingly entered and found a home and many friends. 
Boxing and company softball occupied his afternoons. Having written 
articles for his high school paper, he continued here at the Academy with 
stories for the Log. Although somewhat interested in Navy Air, in the future 
Alex will follow in the footsteps of his dad, and further study engineering. 

^Marvin Qlllen cAlexander 

Leavenworth, Kansas 

Pursuing his life long ambition to become a Naval officer, Alex hit the long 
trail from Kansas to Navy Tech after hearing the bosun's call in 1945. The 
trail was long — a Texas electronics school, Alaska and NAPS, but his per- 
sistance kept his course true. A continuing battle with the Math Department 
was more than offset by his accomplishments in Bull and Dago. In his leisure 
hours, Alex was wholeheartedly devoted to his rack, believing that one 
should interrupt sleep only to gaze at a pretty woman. His broad smile and 
winning personality will never be forgotten by his many friends.

When one glimpses over the 1949 climber of the Herndon Monument, it is 
easy to associate his 65-inch frame with Muscletown, USA. A hitch as a 
Navy ETM and then two years of "Joe College" at Mount Saint Marys 
made Navy Tech more pleasant than it might have otherwise been. The 
Chess and Foreign Relations Clubs filled the intellectual side of his energies, 
while the "Gremlin" found a new love in wrestling. Four years of this sport 
led to many numerals and letters. Al's attitude — "If it's worth doing at all, 
it's worth doing well" — should carry him to the fulfillment of a Navy career 
steeped in story-book material. 

Jbavld Matt Jon cAltwega 

Johnstown, New York 

Dave, as he was known among his friends, set aside his bell-bottom trousers, 
and steered a steady course through Navy Tech. Between 'fixing up' his 
wives with 'queens' (sometimes) and engaging in numerous friendly bridge 
games, Dave found plenty of time to participate in company sports and 
conscientiously follow the Russian Club. Never a week end passed without 
finding Dave escorting some femme around the yard. With his magnetic 
personality, his life will be well filled with friends and happiness. Forty 
years in the Navy is Dave's ambition, and without a doubt it will be the 
Navy's gain.

Coming to us from the wild and woolly west after two years at Arizona State 
College, Andy had little trouble with the academics. He passed his free time 
assuming his favorite horizontal position but came to the vertical momen- 
tarily to star on the company 150's, cross-country and softball teams. He 
claimed that he played the field, but there was only one picture in his locker, 
and all his mail went one place. Although Andy gave up his boots and spurs 
in favor of the more conventional middies' garb, he still retained the ready 
wit which will make him a favorite at an Air Force Base.

Vincent Ranted o4rg,lro 

Brooklyn, New York 

Vince arrived, bringing an excellent sense of humor and a ready laugh, two 
assets that have made and will make him many friends. He had no strain 
with his academics, but swimming was a source of worry at various times. 
He was a mainstay on all company teams he went out for, and his spirit kept 
the company lively even in the dark ages. His one consuming passion was 
the opposite sex as a whole. Vince's list extended from Florida to Maine 
and the week ends were rare that one of his femmes was not at his side. 
Strictly a thirty-year man, Vince will be as much a credit to the Destroyer 
Service as he has been to the Naval Academy.

Fed an Army education at Amherst, the Citadel and That-Place-On-The- 
Hudson, Marcus steamed into Crabtown under the impression that Navy 
Tech was still the best POE for a military career. We grinned at his cartoons 
depicting our four years' battle against the System. He was elected to our 
Class Crest, Ring, and Christmas Card Committees, and we noted when he 
wasn't away on a Forensic trip, he sailed knockabouts as if practicing land- 
ing craft tactics. Our Old Soldier defended his 2.5 perimeter in every phase 
of engineering, but, unlike his technical sorties and soirees, Marc was gifted 
with initiative and a flair for leadership and command.

Upon completing high school, Jeff decided to leave the hills of Kentucky for 
the exciting Navy life. After two years of adventure on the U.S.S. Philippine 
Sea and the U.S.S. New Jersey, which took him to Norway, England, Scot- 
land, and the Antarctic, Jeff was appointed to the Academy. Upon completing 
the struggle of plebe year, several swimming tests, and two years of Dago, 
Jeff was able to stand on his own with ease. Although not an "N" man, Jeff 
has been an asset to the company in intramural sports. Since the beginning 
of youngster year, Jeff has used most of his spare time writing a very cute 
li'l ole gal down Kentucky way.

The terrors of youngster Skinny were not merely psychological in the case 
of Bing Ballou, The Great Lover. This Lothario thought too much of that 
lovely OAO, and before he knew it, the pirates in the Academic Department 
had enabled him to take full advantage of the five-year-plan. Some called 
him Pop, the Great Friend and Master of Men (the 4th estate, that is), while 
others knew him as Prof. Quiz, the Autocrat of the Wardroom Table. A 
true sailor, he rarely skipped a day not yawl sailing. Determined, able, cap- 
able, and above all a gent with whom few would care to tangle, Bing will 
no doubt hoist his flag over his command one day.

San Diego, California 

Conrad Seth Banner left sunny San Diego, California, to make the long trek 
eastward to the quaint city on the Severn. Plebe summer was fruit for Con- 
nie; he gained experience while attending Brown Military Academy. During 
plebe year Connie earned his numerals on the plebe cross-country and sailing 
teams. Starring on championship softball, cross-country, steeplechase, and 
150-pound football teams, Connie earned an impressive pile of class numerals. 
Youngster year he decided to devote more time to academics and restricted 
his athletic abilities to company sports. Serious and conscientious, but always 
ready with a smile, Connie will be successful as a Naval officer. 

J\obert Qraham Sell 

Houston, Texas 

The military life was not something new for Bob, for he came to Navy Tech 
leaving behind him a brilliant record at Peacock Military Academy in San 
Antonio, Texas. Along the academic line, Bob was a real "Dago slash," but 
Skinny and Math weren't always so easy, but the women never posed a defi- 
nite problem for him. Without too much encouragement you could get Bob 
to talk about his favorite pastime, flying, for he was the proud possessor of 
a private pilot's license. As for his Service branch upon graduation, you've 
probably guessed it already — Naval aviation. Here's wishing you the best 
of luck and happy landings, Bob.

Charlie came to Navy after a year at Keystone Junior College primed and 
ready to leave his mark in its academic ledgers. With a rapid mind for cal- 
culation he was sometimes referred to as a "Mark III Computer," attested 
by his stars during his four years here. Not burdened with books, Charlie 
spent his time keeping track of the navies of the world and maintaining his 
large collection of pipes. However, he still found time to keep his hand in 
at music as a member of both the Drum and Bugle Corps and the midship- 
men's Marching Band. Although he is a Pennsylvanian, it has been noticed 
that the mention of Louisville, Kentucky, puts that far-away look in his eyes.

Coshocton, Ohio 

Since only a few transformed his initials into the nickname of "Taxi," most 
of his friends knew him as Chuck. Coming to Navy Tech straight from high 
school, Chuck found it necessary to spend much of his time competing in the 
academic race; however, as dragging was one of his favorite pastimes, he 
reserved most of the week ends for this purpose. As a yachtsman, he was 
among the first in his class to qualify for yawl command. Although Chuck 
was compelled to abandon his civilian knack for automobiles, he found con- 
solation as a member of the Mechanical Engineering Club. With the Air 
Corps as his first choice, Chuck's future is a promise of success.

Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania 

Blackie bounced into this world in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, and at the 
time could claim no vices that are usually associated with the sailor. Despite 
his landlubberly tenderness, Blackie tired of quaint Beaver Valley and turned 
his ponderous footsteps toward the sea. He took a lot of ribbing about being 
hayseed, but during the four years he became quite cosmopolitan. To get his 
mind off the Bull Department's curve balls, and also to lose some of that 
excess, "Young Jack" played tackle for the JV football team. Blackie is set- 
ting his sights on Naval aviation so we'll be looking for him in some jet 
squadron ready room in the near future.

Jim came to the Naval Academy from "out in the sticks" Montana. Al- 
though a little on the serious side, Jim decided never to let his studies inter- 
fere with his having a good time, and at this he has become a success. Trying 
several different sports and making number twenty-five on a twenty-four man 
squad each time, Jim finally settled for squash. When it came to excelling in 
a field, though, Botts missed his calling by not becoming a barber. Bottomly's 
Barber Shop was noted throughout the brigade. The legal branch of the Navy 
has a strange fascination for Jim and he is aiming for Judge Advocate Gen- 
eral — but he will settle for a set of shining wings while waiting for his gavel. 

William Schaefer JSowen 

Chickamauga, Georgia 

An ex-wreck from Georgia Tech, born in Tennessee and raised in Georgia, 
this confirmed rebel spent the majority of his time at Navy Tech in a char- 
acteristic southern pose — horizontal. However, he arose periodically to box, 
sail, and work in the darkroom. In true southern fashion Bill loved all the 
po' li'l gals from Dixie, but none in particular. This embryo zoomie stubbed 
his toes on practically every academic department known to Navy; yet he 
negotiated the obstacle course successfully — how we shall never know. His 
huge ears will mark him as a man to be watched whenever Uncle Sam

best in Foreign Languages, and a member of the French Club, he was really 
well established when the Mids arrived in Paris. He did much to help his 
buddies get the most of what that gay city had to offer. At Navy, Al found 
time to participate in football, sailing, and track as well as render his services 
to the Reception Committee and Foreign Relations Club. Whenever life 
got dull, as it invariably did, we found him strumming his uke while the 
boys joined in the chorus. His cheerfulness, determination, and keen ability 
are sure to make him a successful officer.

an ever-present stumbling block. Plebe year established his track and cross- 
country prowess, but he acquired a foot injury that seemingly halted a bril- 
liant career. Perseverance won out, however, and a year and a half later he

Bud came to Navy young and uninitiated in the ways of the world, but posi- 
tive that the Pacific Northwest is the most beautiful place in the universe. 
His problems never lay in academics for diligence kept him on the top, but 
his biggest difficulty was the long wait for leave and another visit with the 
OAO. A man of simple tastes, Bud drew great pleasure from a quiet Sunday 
afternoon of good music. His talents made him a steady member of the Glee 
Club, but he was equally at home on the gridiron. The amiable ways, think- 
ing eyes and the seed of natural ability that made him popular with all hands, 
should carry him forward wherever he goes.

opportunity with the OAO. Crew provided an excuse for obtaining some 
of that training table chow, and in his youngster year he was awarded the 
first of his string of N's. Possessed with a fine character and a keen sense of 
humor, he refuses to be impressed by the fly boys, and takes his many talents

Following in the footsteps of his hunting companion, Spud journeyed "back

quickly adjusted himself to the rigorous life at Navy and eagerly attacked 
his academics. His amazing powers of concentration, despite the jealous 
jeers of his buddies, always kept him in the safe half of the class. In his spare 
time, "Duck" took on all comers in ping-pong and quickly trounced them. 
His straightforwardness, unaffected action, and dependability will stand Don

After a rugged two years in the Marine Corps, "Smiley" came to Navy for

Although a lover and constant praiser of our good Navy chow, Jack always

himself in the boxing ring and in his photographic work which appeared in

Joe left home in St. Louis, Missouri, for a hitch in the U.S. Marines, only to 
be appointed to the Naval Academy. After prepping at Bainbridge, he came 
here as one of the most colorful guys in '52. Being at home in any athletic 
contest, Joe played on the plebe soccer squad, but spent most of his time here 
as one of the most aggressive players on Navy's 150-pound football team. 
Not exactly a ladies' man, Joe has had his share of bricks, queens, and just

Wyandotte, Michigan 

After a brief stopover in the land-lubbery Merchant Marines, Mitch finally 
decided to become a real sailor at the Naval Academy. "Ski's" musical talent 
extended as far as the harmonica, with which he whiled away many hours 
to the groans of his classmates. The other chief beneficiary of his spare time 
out of the sack was the Russian Club of which he eventually became an 
officer. Although Mitch assiduously collected numbers for his collection of 
"Little black books," he centered his attention on an often mentioned gal 
from the Northland. Mitch will be a successful officer in whatever branch 
of the Service he chooses. 

Mar old Ldward ColllnJ 

Chicago, Illinois 

Harold came to the Academy via Bainbridge after spending a few years in 
the Navy as a hospital corpsman. After arriving at Navy Tech, he distin- 
guished himself by starring plebe year and also by his many hours on the Sub 
Squad. His only academic trouble was keeping those hard won stars. Doc's 
ready wit and ever-present cap pistol have made him many friends and 
brightened our darker hours. Although always ready for a good time, and 
always participating in the fun, his studies had to come first. Doc had a 
strong yearning toward the Silent Service but would make any other Service 
as well a ready and willing officer. 

Pat Cur tin 

Forest, Ohio 

Broken legs, weekly "Dear Johns," and the Executive Department's rant- 
ings couldn't stop Patsy. Forest, Ohio's claim to fame, started his Naval 
career as a seaman but soon used NAPS as the first step to gain the coveted 
gold stripes. He probably met more girls who were "it" than any other 
member of the class. Curtin has a ready wit and was always in demand 
when characters for a party were needed. His classmates will remember him 
as a firm friend and a fine classmate; the Executive Department will remem- 
ber him too, but perhaps those who will remember him best are the loves 
he's left behind. Good luck, Pat.

Lexington, Kentucky 

"Easy Ed" came to USNA from Lexington, Kentucky, with stopovers at 
AETM school and NAPS, Bainbridge. Ed never had much to say about 
himself, but background wasn't necessary, for knowing Ed himself was a 
privilege. A fellow with many interests, Ed spent his Academy days partici- 
pating in activities such as tennis, sailing, and bowling. An authority on 
race horses, bluegrass, and women, our boy from Lexington could have 
easily become an outstanding man of the soil, but the U.S. Navy got him 
first. Like many others, Ed loved the smell of salt air and marline. His 
independent spirit made him well suited for his chosen career in the Navy. 

Jbavid Juunham eVavllon 

Pensacola, Florida 

Coming from Pensacola, "The Dog" had a big head start on the rest of us 
in that he already knew what this Navy life was about. Having been form- 
ally, but not completely, educated in various and sundry schools ranging 
from the ABC's in Panama to the higher social education of Marion Insti- 
tute, he arrived at the Naval Academy only to find that the academics 
often interfered with his extracurricular activities. To battle words with 
Dave is to sign your own death warrant. He could provide pictures to go 
with his words — witness his cartoons in the Log. "The Dog," following in 
the footsteps of his father, has his heart set on wings, and with his head in 
the clouds, how can he miss?

Flemington, New Jersey 

A favorite son of Flemington, New Jersey, "the Boosh" was drawn into 
the Navy fold at an early age. After a short but sweet tour of sea duty, our 
hero decided the Navy was for him and proceeded to the Naval Academy 
via Bainbridge (NAPS). He successfully weathered the trials and tribula- 
tions of plebe year but then ill luck struck. An injury cost him a trip to 
Paris, and the Korean War cheated him out of an Air Cruise. On the brighter 
side, "the Boosh" was always a steady man in academics and a game crew 
man when the spirit moved him. His cheerful, easygoing nature and his 
innate ability assured him of success in the Fleet.

Clarks Fork, Idaho 

When "Jeep" found the forests of Idaho weren't large enough for him, he 
migrated to the University of Idaho. The horizons proving limited there, 
he traveled on to Navy; when it became too cramped for his style, he ran 
extra duty. During plebe year J. P. turned up a creditable record as a pugilist. 
Track and gym awards came to decorate his B-robe in later years. Not con- 
tent with raising havoc with the inmates during the week, "Jeep" never 
missed a dragging week end. Leaving behind a Naval Academy with a few 
new traditions and taking with him a fierce and undying hatred of all 
Skinny profs, "Jeep" moved on into the Navy Line.

Ashland, Kansas 

At a very tender age Bull heard the call of the Service, left high school at 
Ashland, Kansas, and offered his talents to the Marine Corps. Being moulded 
and forged into an able wrap-leg did not require all his time, so he finished 
high school via Armed Forces Correspondence Courses. At Navy he quickly 
established himself as one whose spirit could not be stifled. Although he 
worked harder than average, in order to get better marks, he had adequate 
time to entertain the fair sex, his fancy at the time. He was a stalwart on 
the company cross-country squad. He had his sights set on the U.S. Air 
Force after graduation.

Gary, Indiana 

Only Drive and a few of his Hoosier friends know that the "Steel City" he 
calls home is Gary, Indiana and not Pittsburgh. Glenn came to Navy from 
high school by way of a Congressional Appointment and claimed that he 
spent the better part of his time keeping ahead of the Academic Departments. 
Despite this academic race, he managed to favorably impress his classmates 
and his share of Eastern women with his smile and midwestern humor. 
Even with this midwestern background, Glenn seemed to like it "warmer 
than most" and hoped for a long tour of duty in sunny Florida or California 
after a short stop with the Supply Corps at Bayonne, New Jersey.

Lowell Franklin Eggert is a name which sounds a little on the sophisticated 
side but Lowell's classmates fixed that up in no time at all. He was soon 
known throughout the middie congregation as Gus. Gus was a very amiable 
guy. He had nary an enemy in the world while here, with the exception of 
those who at various times fried him for "shooting the breeze" in ranks — 
one of his pet diversions. Gus worked long and hard against keen opposition 
in order to earn a place on Navy's varsity gym squad. (He did fairly well on 
the executive track squad also.) Gus's easygoing manner should make his 
career a happy one.

Buzz, who claimed California was second best only to Utah, came to Navy 
Tech from prep school. His happy-go-lucky attitude definitely helped make 
his four years at Navy more pleasant. Academics never caused him any great 
concern — he simply refused to worry about them. He cited youngster Math 
to prove that anything above 2.50 is wasted effort. Women were his first 
love, with two, three, or more always on the string; next came bee-bop, and 
then pole vaulting. His love for excitement will be more than satisfied in 
Naval aviation, his goal for the future. 

J\obert La win Clmwood 

Saginaw, Michigan 

Robert entered the Naval Academy by way of the Marine Corps. While at 
NAPS, the Leatherneck acquired the nickname Gunny. Gunny and the Math 
Department had their rounds every year, but Gunny won the decision each 
time. During plebe year he amazed the first classmen with his tricks with a 
rifle. He took quite a bit of kidding about his nightly written reports to his 
OD (his girl) in Baltimore. Although the boys across the hall often threw 
him out of their room in the morning for reading their paper, Gunny made 
many friends here at Navy. Gunny has a brilliant career ahead when he re- 
turns to his first love, the Marine Corps.

Wichita Falls, Texas 

After spending the first seventeen years of his life in Texas, Jean found the 
lure of the sea irresistible; so, in the fall of 1945, he exchanged his Texas citi- 
zenship for that of the United States and set out to conquer new horizons via 
Uncle Sam's Navy. As a machinists' mate aboard the carrier F.D.J^., "Ole 
Fitts" was happy and carefree; but ambition snared him and led him to 
NAPS, and thence to the Academy. Here, while not so carefree, he main- 
tained his happy attitude. He gave unstintingly of time and effort as manger 
of the 150-pound football team. When Fitts once again joins the Fleet for 
the "thirty-year cruise," nowhere will there be found a better officer. 

Karl Msorrid Friedman 

Savannah, Georgia 

Karl came north to Navy not really sure of what to expect. For a while life 
at Navy seemed a lot more demanding than the routine at the TEP house, 
but after the inquisition of plebe year, Karl managed to settle down to the 
normal mixture of classes and dragging. Although he was continually begin- 
ning a diet in an effort to maintain the physique that won him the nickname 
Rock in civilian life, he acquired a very apt monicker, Tongs, youngster 
year. Considering the infamy of the table he was sitting on, it was probably 
only the self-preservation instinct. Graduation hopes were to earn sky anchors 
at Pensacola. 

Paul iVllllam Juelling,, jr. 

Mastic Beach, New York 

Dutch came to Navy by way of a two-year stop at Admiral Farragut Acad- 
emy. At Farragut he earned two varsity letters with his deadly marksman- 
ship. His name was etched in Farragut 's "Hall of Fame" for gaining eighth 
place in the National Honor School competition for appointments to the 
Naval Academy. Dutch continued with his sharp shooting at Tech and 
proved athletic versatility in vertually all company sports. His main inter- 
ests were hunting, fishing, and daily letters to and from the OAO at home. 
The latter lead to Dutch's famous quote, "Darn! No letter from my girl 
today." Dutch, with his grear drive and his sparkling wit, will be a favorite 
with both his men and his fellow officers.

The Spade's last jump with the Eleventh Airborne landed him in USNA 
via Bainbridge — but his heart is still at 40,000 feet. This great love is also 
his great sorrow — F9F or F86? Dick found time to fly a few sorties on the 
opposite sex, the more notable being on Camid V. Spade also demonstrated 
his prowess in batt and company athletics as well as in activities of the Rus-

his classmates will well attest to his friendliness and quick wit which will

"If only classes didn't take up all our time at Annapolis." Yearning for the 
good old days of liberal arts at Colgate, Jerry was sure he could spend four 
years at Navy by reading, dragging, debating, or playing golf and never 
once enter one of the venerable academic buildings; there were others who 
thought differently. It was hard for Jerry to keep his mind from centering 
on activities that he considered worthy of his efforts. At times it seemed he 
was majoring in debating, squash, or dragging, but all these devious activi- 
ties were designed only to keep his mind from straying too far from the 
world existing outside the walls.

He had been in the Service since he was seventeen and always said, "I found

his magic tricks, he was usually delving into the mysteries of Math and 
Skinny. His classic expressions were, "I don't get this stuff" and "You can't 
run an engine room with a slide rule." Hard work and determination kept 
Ralph with us, but despite his academic trials he found time to devote many 
hours to church activities. Ralph pinned his hopes on the Submarine Service.

John came to the Naval Academy, fulfilling an ambition of many years. 
Engineering drawing was the course which first evoked the famous phrase, 
"I should have taken the General Arts Course." For relaxation after the 
rigors of academics, John found an outlet by sailing with the varsity sailing 
team. The Photographic, Boat, and Marine Engineering Clubs claimed the

U/alter Scott Jfamilton 

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 

Completing three years of college, one year at Oklahoma University before

Service, the tight schedule of Navy Tech was nothing to fear for Scotty. At 
Oklahoma A & M, he was a member of Pi Mu Epsilon honorary Mathe- 
matics Society and also a member of Eta Kappa Nu honorary Electrical Engi- 
neering Society. A virtual jack-of-all-trades in the sports department, Scotty 
put forth maximum effort for his company athletic teams. The picture of

mythical phrase "Gotta oxidize that alcohol to an aldehyde."

become a success in the trucking business and a football idol. His ability 
rated him an invitation to West Point by their football coach, but Bob's 
choice in Navy Tech was justified as his OAO from Goucher quickly agreed. 
Those long evenings over a Russian text would evoke a pleading cry, "Take 
me back to Missouri, these shoes are killing me (14^)." Bob's efforts in

The worries he gave the national debt and world affairs would make him a

him by his home town of Florence, "Sawcalina." Two years at Clemson 
prepared him well for the rigors of Academy routine; consequently, he was 
able to keep up a good set of marks and still manage to squeeze in Brigade 
boxing and intramural sports. Youngster year found him devoting some gay 
week ends to dragging. His sole academic tormentor was the Bull Depart- 
ment, but whatever talents he lacked were made up for in Math. Smitty 
wants to fly for the Navy after graduation, and if he becomes as hot a pilot 
as we believe he will, his jet will be roaring with a loud Southern drawl.

Samuel Jrenru Smith,, III 

Marshall, Missouri 

In June 1948, a happy-go-lucky fellow named Sam arrived at Navy. Now 
as he leaves, he will be remembered by all those who knew him as a great 
guy, always ready with a laugh and a smile. During his four years he made 
an enviable record in such fields as Public Relations and the Reception Com- 
mittee. On the athletic side, he was varsity baseball manager and also was 
very active in company and battalion sports. The pride of Marshall listed 
his hardest subject as Skinny and Physical Training; swimming tests were 
his pet peeve. Sam favors the Marine green and we're sure that they'll be as 
proud of him as we are. 

William c4ndrew Smith 

Toledo, Ohio 

Bill spent two years in the Fleet before he left his home town of Toledo, 
Ohio, for the Naval Academy. While prepping for the Fleet entrance exams 
at Bainbridge, Maryland, he established a reputation for himself with his 
photographic contributions to the school's yearbook. The '52 Reef Points 
benefited from his experience. Primarily a lion amongst ladies, Bill also 
allowed ample time for wine and song. Yet he reserved deeper sentiments 
for a certain home town belle. His ready smile and winning personality 
earned him many friends when he returned to the Fleet. 

Jbavid flohn Sperling 

Juneau, Alaska 

The pride of the Eskimos back in Juneau, Dave came to us after a spell at 
Bullis Prep. He was a mainstay on his company volleyball, Softball, cross- 
country and light football teams. Athletics, however, were only a minor 
part of his life at Navy. The greater part of his time was divided between 
the Academic Departments and the fairer sex. Dave was always a one girl 
man, but apparently liked variety as indicated by the number of girls he 
dragged. He is a future fly-boy, and we hope that planes will be built hot 
enough for him. The boys of '52 will always associate Dave with good 
times at the Severn Seminary.

abavid 3ranci5 Staple 

Muskegon, Michigan 

Dave came to us via NAPS and the Fleet, where he was an ETM 2/c, and 
of course, Juice never became a problem. As far as that goes, any afternoon 
he could be found in the sack, and the only incentive that would arouse him 
was a game of football or basketball. One could always depend on him to 
join in any sport. He has remained true blue to his home town OAO 
throughout, and he could always put in a good word for his podunk. His 
pleasant smile, pleasing disposition, and friendliness are sure to make him a 
success on any ship that is lucky enough to receive him. 

fohn Peter Stephen A 

Berkeley, California 

John Peter Stephens came to the Naval Academy from Berkeley, California, 
via a Fleet Appointment from the Marine Corps, attending University of 
California and College of Pacific previously as a pre-med student. An ardent 
admirer of the female species, he found his OAO youngster leave. The 
"California Meteor" loved merriment, and his spare time was devoted to 
solid Dixie. Sack time was his pet when he was not engaged in cross-country 
or playing water polo. One was sure to find him where the wine was muddy, 
the femmes exotic, and the song gayest. Look for monumental things from 
this veritable wizard known as the "chuckler!" 

Jbonald Owen Stevend 

Lansing, Michigan 

Don came to us via NAPS, a ready made sailor, by virtue of his inherited 
interest in all things nautical. Not a pedant, Steve's head was left "bloody 
but unbowed" several times by the Math Department, but he always man- 
aged to stay within the limits of his often used phrase, "Anything over 2.5 
is wasted effort." A true sportsman on the fields of friendly strife, Don's 
size prevented him from rowing a shell, so he contented himself with com- 
pany and batt sports. His heart directed his interests to a certain Navy- 
minded girl from way down south. To the Line and Submarines, we send 
a true sailor and gentleman.

J\obert Herrell Swalley, 

St. Charles, Missouri 

After a year's sojourn at Missouri University, Bob moved himself to Navy 
Tech where he soon established himself as a solid man with a slide rule, 
as his stars attested. However, he found much time to take part in activities 
such as being associate editor of Reef Points. Plebe year hindered his relations 
with the fairer sex but with this limitation removed he expanded his field 
of operations, as was shown by numerous dragging week ends, and his con- 
quests at Virginia Beach and Ocean City. With his quiet friendliness, his 
capabilities, and his quick adaptability, Bob will be a welcome addition to 
any branch of the Service in which he chooses to make his career. 

J\onald J\oy, SwanAon 

Lake Bronson, Minnesota 

"Swanee," originally from the north woods of Minnesota, came to us from 
the Navy. He was always willing to hoist a couple of cool ones with a buddy 
while talking over old Navy lore. "Swanee" said that his greatest compli- 
ment came when a first class boatswain mate called him the biggest gold 
bricker in the Navy. Academics presented him no problem, and he didn't 
over-load his mind with studying. After classes, we found him down at the 
America Dock acting as ballast for one of the dinghy captains. He was look- 
ing forward to a career in the Air Corps, but his greatest aspiration was to 
have six months leave, twice a year. 

William UnomaJ Verrell 

Washington, D.C. 

Hailing from Washington, D.C, Bill came to us from the ranks of the Ma- 
rine Corps and Bainbridge. At the Academy, he put in a stint with the March- 
ing and Concert Bands. Shortly after his arrival at Navy Tech, he was intro- 
duced to lacrosse, and liking the game, he tackled it with enthusiasm. Having 
very little trouble with academics, Willie was able to use his week ends for 
more important things, such as building models and dragging a certain Balti- 
more belle who captured his interest. When he makes the final choice Bill 
will be torn between his loyalty to the Marine Corps and his new found 
love for submarines.

cAlexander Miller ZJodd 

Washington, D.C. 

Born in Shanghai, China, Miller can claim most any place for his home town, 
but usually names Washington, D.C. After graduating from Western High 
School, and a brief tour at Hilder Prep, Miller headed for Navy Tech. Hav- 
ing lived in Annapolis before, he was acquainted with the grim, gray walls 
before most of us even saw them. There was some doubt as to Miller's 
whereabouts on the morning we left for Camid, and since then he has been 
the proud possessor of a black "N" on his B-robe. When a fast samba or 
rhumba starts to play, Miller's eyes light up and you may see visions of a 
smoke- filled night club where he is charming some gay lass while sipping a 
cocktail or two. 

CnarleA J\obert Vropptnan 

Wenatchee, Washington 

C. R. Troppman, otherwise known as "Tropp" hails from the country 
where apple is king, Wenatchee, Washington. Four years of fencing, the 
same length of time on the Public Relations Committee, plus three years 
sailing dinghys, show that Chuck was one of the "bright-eyed and bushy- 
tailed boys." Tropp qualified for a sailing command youngster year. Always 
ready to laugh before and after a P-work, Chuck won himself a place of honor 
with his shipmates. A year at Wenatchee J. C. helped him through his first 
year at the Academy, but novels and letter-writing have kept Jacob Reed 
from parting with a set of stars for this "salt." His little black book attests 
his prowess with women. 

CnarleA framed M/aljh 

Chicago, Illinois 

It was the Navy's gain and Chicago's loss when Chuck left the University 
of Chicago High School for USNA via Severn. At football games we saw 
him hiding behind his saxophone in the Marching Band, and plebe year he 
pinned many opponents in the wrestling loft and coxswained crew. He also 
found time to use his yawl command on the salt of the Chesapeake. Knobby 
loved to argue with his wives and be kind to plebes, but they won't hold 
that against him when he becomes an Air Force man. His week ends weren't 
all taken up studying — although his grades looked it — because with two 
gals at a time, it's hard to choose between them.

ZJhomaJ Jjuj/c uJanaJ, jr. 

Kansas City, Kansas 

Tom never failed in his four years at Navy to keep the company in laughs; 
and we are sure that he'll continue to after graduation. A gifted cartoonist, 
the pride of Wyandotte High's art and comic section, he added the spice and 
humor of his gifted pen to the Log, Trident Calendar, and ~Reef Points. Tom 
stopped at Bullis for a while on his way to Navy. There were no stars in 
his eyes, however, -when it came to academics. Speakin' of eyes, Tom's 
needed a little help now and then, so the Supply Corps has its eye on him. 
That was okay with Tom; he would make any outfit one of the best. 

flohn Carter lAJilliamAon 

Tallahassee, Florida 

Willie left sunny Tallahassee to join the ranks of blue possessing all the assets 
of an ante helium plantation owner's son. Whenever the burden of academic 
worries became intolerable, he fled to the incomparable rack. From this 
supine position, Will waged a three-way battle beteeen studies, pocket 
novels, and sleep. Every year when the winter winds began to blow, Will's 
thoughts drifted to the warm southern weather and beautiful women and 
caused him to check the acceptability of his credits at FSU. When Bancroft's 
loss becomes the Fleets gain, Long John's wit and friendly southern nature 
will surround him with as large a retinue of friends as he had in his four years 
on the Severn. 

Ranted Caaar iXJilAon, jr. 

Auburndale, Florida 

After graduation from Auburndale High School back in June 1946, it was 
only a few weeks before Jim decided to leave his Florida home for a tour of 
duty in the Navy. After boot camp at Bainbridge, Maryland, and a tour of 
duty in the USS Taconic AGC 17, Jim returned to Bainbridge from which 
he came to USNA. Jim seemed a little unhappy plebe year due to lack of 
companionship of the fairer sex. After plebe year, life seemed to go smoothly 
with Jim, and of course, his summers were happy with that extra liberty 
which he used to full advantage. Upon entering the Fleet Jim will take with 
him many memories of friends and events at Navy Tech.

UnomaJ Siiienton ii)inkler, jfr. 

New Orleans, Louisiana 

T.Q. hails from the land of Mardi Gras the French Quarters, and the Cat 
Woman. Having done time at West Point plus a year and a half of college 
joy at Mississippi State, he finally settled down at USNA. Never a brain 
storm in the classroom, our would-be Bull prof had to work hard to escape 
the clutches of the Math and Skinny Departments. Wink was an ardent 
admirer of females until second class year when he suddenly reversed and 
became a confirmed misogynist. His present fetish is photography; at all 
company affairs flash bulbs pop and shutters click. Air Force bound, Wink 
will find friends everywhere. 

J\ouert Stewart Wrotlt 

Westfield, New Jersey 

"Bouncing Bobby" wasn't really born with a slide rule in his hand, but it 
could not have been long before he was intoduced to that amazing device. 
The things he could do with it constantly astonished his classmates and 
instructors. This phenomenon, however, had been going on at Renssalaer 
Polytechnic Institute long before the Navy claimed Bob. Although he strained 
over academics, he was always ready to hold extra instruction for some of 
his less savvy classmates. As a varsity soccer player, Bob showed that his 
abilities were not confined to academics only. Bob plans to leave the fold 
and exchange the Navy blue for the Air Force blue.

The making of the 1952 Lucky Bag would not be com- 
plete without mentioning those without whom it could 
not have been made. The staff worked hard and long hours, 
but we were, nevertheless, pure novices in the publishing 
field. To the expert hands that guided us we are ever- 
lastingly indebted. 

First there was Harry Lavelle. Harry represented the 
printer, yet before long he became the printer and all that a 
printer represents was embodied in him. His guidance was 
a prerequisite for success and it was always willingly given 
and always sincere. No words of thanks are enough to re- 
veal our appreciation. 

Next there was Harry Baker. Mr. Baker was the en- 
graver and as the engraver was a tireless worker to meet our 
importunate deadlines. Perfection was his goal and we 
think he met it. 

To Marvin Merin and Harry Hollander of Merin Studios 
go our unbounded thanks. Both of these men were most 
cooperative in lending their hands to our work. We feel 
that the results reflect their meticulous photography. 

To Commanders Blackburn and Taeusch and Lieutenant 
Commander Countryman, our officer representatives, go 
our final words of thanks and appreciation. Their aid and 
advice were invaluable to the production of this book. 

Of course. 

it would be redundant to say that 

our advertisers have made 

this book possible. Still, it is so. 

Without them, the job 

could never have been done. 

Our appreciation and thanks are 

all we can include here. 

But we include them with the 

modest assurance that 

they are sincerely heartfelt.

does strange things to Lucky Bags . . . makes them everything from just a history of 
four years to a proud possession of an OAO or a years-hence memory for a land-lubber. 
. . . To those who compile it, however, it is arbitrarily something more. . . . 

From youngster autumn on, there were long hours of contemplation before the summer 
when work actually began. You remember drowsy study periods when your mind, tired 
from the day's exhaustive schedule and subconsciously aware of unopened skinny books, 
hesitated over pix, layouts and unenumerated ideas which demanded expression. 

You remember beautiful four-bell dawns when the marching line melted away from 
the grind and into the open road to Baltimore. Days when the printer's proximity was a 
blessing and the hot sun on your blues was less noticeable in an open car than it would 
have been on the drill field. 

You recall moments of anxiety when it seemed as if your efforts for perfection would 
be obliterated by a moment's forgetfulness or an unforeseen detail. And the endless 
phone calls and special delivery packages of anticipation and uncertainty, sandwiched in 
between long bull sessions of command decisions. 

You recollect sleepless nights when the double threat of deadlines and exam schedules 
presaged disaster. And other slumbers which succeeded the more promising days, when 
the world assumed a new aura and it looked as though June Week might write off a 
happy ending after all. 

You remember how you tried to hide the pride and relief that threatened a broad grin 
when you finally closed your hands around the finished copy. 632 pages of your own 
creation. . . .

Pilot down ! Another 3 
famed air-sea rescue team. With the 
Piasecki hup helicopter . . . equipped 
for "hands off" (automatic) flying . . . 
the Navy goes into action. 

► The hup hovers while stabilized 
by the Sperry A- 12 Gyropilot* flight 
control. Automatic stabilization 
greatly facilitates hovering over a target, 
as adjustments are then required 

only to correct for changes in wind drift. 

► For the helicopter pilot . . ."Hands 
off" flying reduces pilot fatigue by 
freeing him from "flying" constantly 
with both hands and feet. He is 

free to concentrate on navigation, 
communications, rescue and submarine 
search duties while the automatic 
pilot takes over. 

► For the Navy . . . Through the use of 
the Gyropilot, the hup has full 
automatic stabilization in yaw, pitch 
and roll— the ultimate aim in the rotary 
wing field. Thus, military uses of the 
helicopter are almost limitless. 

► On all missions, the Gyropilot 
greatly improves the ability of the 
helicopter to fly in reduced visibility, 
to maneuver automatically on take-offs 
and landings and to make automatically 
stabilized instrument landings through 



low weather ceilings

As pioneer and leader in aircraft struts, 
Cleveland Pneumatic Tool maintains a 
highly trained and experienced staff of land- 
ing gear engineers. These engineers work 
with such special equipment as the drop- 
test machines illustrated, which closely 
simulate an actual landing. Chart records 
like the one shown indicate the reactions 
which occur in a fraction of a second when 
the struts "land". 

Thus Cleveland Pneumatic engineers check 
the "behavior" of new Aerol designs to 
verify their calculations. Information ob- 
tained permits further refinement of the 
hydraulic character of the strut — enabling 
Cleveland Pneumatic to get the last drop 
of efficiency out of Aerols. 

This all-out testing for all-out efficiency is 
one of the reasons why Aerols are world- 
famed as the finest in landing gear. 

In addition to conventional Aerols, we 
also manufacture the new Liquid 
Springs for aircraft. Ask for Brochure.

In war or peace . . . Douglas serves 

the Nation ! Nearly three decades ago, Douglas 
built its first military airplane — a torpedo plane 
for the U. S. Navy. Since then, in every emergency, 
Douglas planes have been ready when needed. 

Our SBD Dauntless dive-bombers, launched from 
U. S. carriers, turned the tide of victory at Midway. 

In Korea, Douglas AD Skyraiders provided 
effective tactical support for UN troops. 

Now Douglas is meeting the expanding need for 
defense aircraft. Newest of the AD series, for 
example, is the A2D Skyshark, the world's most 
advanced turbo-prop attack bomber. 

In nearly every field of aeronautics, including 
guided missiles, Douglas continues to pioneer, 
so that today — and always — America will remain 
first in the air! Douglas Aircraft Company, Inc. 

Skilled engineers and 
technicians find Douglas

Value is a lot of things 

For example . . . 

Value is a high-compression engine 
. . .you can tell how high by the com- 
pression ratio. 


A compression ratio of 7.0 to 1, for 
instance, is considered high. The 7.0 
to 1 means that the fuel-air mixture 
is compressed to one-seventh of its 
volume before it's ignited. High com- 
pression "squeezes" top performance 
from every drop of gasoline. 


Value is high horsepower (HP.) too. 
One horsepower is the amount of 
power that would lift a 550-lb. weight 
at the rate of one foot per second. 
Plymouth has a 97-horsepower en- 
gine with a 7.0 to 1 compression ratio. 

Value is also the way power is ex- 
erted. Combustion in the cylinder 
head should take place evenly and 
smoothly. The 1952 Plymouth has an 
engine head design that adds new 

Value is a starter that doesn't "kick 
out" at the first engine response, but 
follows through for a moment to give 
extra assurance of fast starts in all 

Value is the electric windshield wiper. 
Unlike the vacuum type, the electric 
doesn't slow down when you're climb- 
ing a hill or accelerating. 



Value is the extra control of two, 
instead of one, hydraulic cylinders 
in the front brakes, where accurate, 
even action is important on a quick 
stop. It's also Cyclebond brake lin- 
ings that outwear riveted types. 



Value is a Safety-Rim Wheel that 
protects you in case of a blowout by 
holding the deflated tire firmly on the 
rim while you slow to a safe stop. 


not this /f-C^- 

Value is the Oriflow shock absorber 
that gives nearly three times the cush- 
ioning power of the ordinary type. 

Value is a chair-height seat that lets 
you sit up naturally, with legs and 
back fully supported, both in front 
and rear seats. 


Value is small but thoughtful details 
like a window regulator that raises or 
lowers your window easily in two 
turns, not four, or five, or six. 

Value is a counterbalanced trunk lid 
that lifts at a finger-touch and stays 
up without bothersome side supports. 
And a counterbalanced hood too. 

Value is the extra durability of spe- 
cial, super-hard exhaust valve seat 
inserts. They postpone the need for 
valve grinding for thousands of miles. 


Value is a chain drive instead of a 
direct-gear drive for the camshaft. 
The chain spreads the contact over 
many teeth, instead of just a few, and 
keeps wear to a minimum so the drive 
stays quiet.

Value is an oil intake that floats just 
below the surface of oil in the crank-

bottom, drawing in only the clean oil 
that means long engine life. 

Value is good service, too. Service

"I have been a member of the U. S. Naval Institute for almost 
fifty years. I would urge all hands of the Navy, Marine Corps, and 
Coast Guard to become members in order to keep in touch with the 
progress in any part of sea power." 

Says Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz : 

"In my own midshipman days it was the custom for the entire 
graduating class to become members of the Naval Institute before 
graduation. It is an excellent introduction to commissioned service 
which I hope is still pursued by the graduates of the Naval Academy 
and the N.R.O.T.C. universities and colleges." 

Says Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr. : 

"The need for every naval officer to be a well-founded, well-in- 
formed man is a vital one. There is no better way to achieve this than 
via some such medium as the Naval Institute and the Naval Institute

N the days when a horse was one of the fastest and most reliable means of commu- 
nication, a faulty nail often meant the loss of a shoe, the rider, and in war, a battle. 
Today, in the age of electronics, a small part, just as insignificant as a horseshoe nail, 
if faulty, and not located in time can seriously upset the skipper's plans and 


Where it was once said "a command is as effective as its communications", one may elabo- 
rate and state, without fear of contradiction, that today a commander relies to a great extent 
on many electronic devices. The importance of electronic devices for effective operations of the 
armed forces, whether they be on land, on the sea, or in the air is a fact well established by recent 
wars and police actions. 

To have equipment is one thing — to maintain it for a state of readiness is still more im- 
portant. Even though the "Old Man" may seldom see a technician locate a faulty or failing part 
in an important electronic unit, he will be among the first to know that the obscure "nail" was not 
located in time. So much depends upon proper inspection and maintenance that its importance in 
modern defense can hardly be exaggerated. A ship off course, a plane in trouble, a delayed message, 
a surprise attack — many electronic devices are involved in collecting, and disseminating instruc- 
tions or intelligence — not to mention the hundreds of types used for analysis and control. 

Supreme's mission in the defense program is to help the technician anticipate and locate 
that defective "nail" by supplying well designed and dependable test instruments. For over a 
quarter century Supreme has been a major contributor to the efficiency of electronic technicians 
— we grew up with them. By continuous research, development, improvement and manufacture 
of equipment for the maintenance of electronic devices, plus our close contact with the elec- 
tronic technician, knowing the job he has to do — what it could mean if he fails — leads us to 
accept new challenges with confidence and pride. Supreme's know-how gained both in peace 
and war is one of this nation's assets in times like these.

It's likely you'll soon be one of the lucky lads assigned 
to a vessel whose copper, brass or copper nickel pipe 
lines are fitted with Silbraz* joints made with Walseal 
Fittings or Walseal Valves. If so, we know they'll in- 
crease your peace of mind because a Silbraz system 
means a "one-piece" pipe line with no potential joint 

Skippers who were shipmates with Silbraz joints 
during the war will tell you that when hell was poppin' 
on deck there was no need to worry about the Silbraz 
system below. Silbraz joints can't creep or pull apart 
under any condition of temperature, pressure, shock, or 
vibration which the pipe itself can survive. Good Luck !

• So don't be caught short. When you're 
stepping out for the evening, and want 
to look like a million dollars— see to it 
that your shoes are shined. There's really 
no excuse for untidy-looking shoes. 
You'll find it pays to keep a supply of 
Shinola Shoe Polishes on hand. 

Shinola's scientific combination of 
oily waxes helps to hold in and replenish 
the normal oils in leather— helps main- 
tain flexibility— and that means longer 
wear. So remember— a shine is the sign 
of a healthy shoe, keep 'em shining
